Update to plumbing and drainage terminology and fees


On the 27 September Council endorsed the adjustment of wording within the plumbing and drainage schedule of fees and charges to match terminology used within the new plumbing and drainage legislation as well as adjusting three (3) fees to maintain consistency across the application types.

The differences you will notice include:

  • Plumbing Applications – Dwelling Only – Class 1&10 Buildings – Sewered has been reclassified as Plumbing Applications - Fast Track Permit Application
  • Plumbing Applications – Dwelling Only – Class 1&10 Buildings – Unsewered has been reclassified as Plumbing Applications – Permit Work – Class 1&10 Buildings – Unsewered
  • Plumbing Applications – Commercial Only – Class 2-9 Buildings – Sewered has been reclassified as Plumbing Applications – Permit Work – All Building Classes – Sewered
  • Plumbing Applications – Commercial Only – Class 2-9 Buildings – Unsewered has been reclassified as Plumbing Applications – Permit Work – Class 2-9 Buildings – Unsewered.
Additionally, the following fees have increased to reduce confusion and maintain consistency across all application types:
  • Residential – Sewered – Inspection Fees from $109.00 to $112.00
  • Residential – Sewered – Testable Backflow Prevention Device – Inspection Fee from $109.00 to $112.00
  • Residential – Unsewered – Amended Plans Assessment and Inspection Fees from $111.00 to $112.00.
We anticipate the changes will come into effect within the next few weeks once Council’s application management system has been updated by our system administrator.
