Stormwater Management Policy

The Stormwater Management Policy was adopted by Council on 16 November 2022.

Council manages and maintains drainage infrastructure assets to provide the community with a safe and reliable stormwater network. The objectives of the Stormwater Management Policy are to provide clarity on:

  • Definitions of the stormwater network
  • Different types of flooding that can experienced.
  • What are responsibilities of Council, developers and property owners

And in doing so:

  • Ensure consistency and transparency when managing stormwater 
  • Adopt and implement a standard for stormwater management, and
  • Minimise any disagreements between stakeholders.
