    Sydney Water is reviewing the contributions paid by developers for recycled water services in the Rouse Hill and Hoxton Park areas, and we have extended the deadline for written submissions by one week to 5pm on Monday, 6 September.

    Many of us have been dealing with COVID-related matters over the past weeks and months, so we hope the deadline extension is helpful.

    These infrastructure contributions cover the cost of recycled water services for developments and are set according to a method determined by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART).

    All information used to set the contributions is contained in the associated draft Development Servicing Plan (DSP) and supporting documents.

    You can view the documents here:

    Rouse Hill: Draft Development Servicing Plan

    Hoxton Park: Draft Development Servicing Plan

    This information is available on our website until 5pm on Monday, 6 September 2021, and we invite your comment by email: developercharges@sydneywater.com.au

    Public exhibition has been delayed on the proposed new developer charges for recycled water services in the Rouse Hill and Hoxton Park areas.

    The delay is pending the finalisation of some technical aspects of the Development Servicing Plan with the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART). Sydney Water is actively working with IPART to finalise these as soon as possible to ensure all aspects of the Plan are complete ahead of exhibition.

    The Plan, which details the prices and how we arrive at them, was set to be made public on Monday, 17 May 2021, and run for 30 working days.

    Sydney Water will advise the new 30-day period as soon as possible. We will also post it on our website on this page.

    For more information, please contact us at developercharges@sydneywater.com.au
