Simon Corbell is trying to drum up enthusiasm for a review of water-related development decisions:
“The Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate will undertake the inquiry into the 40% reduction in water usage in new developments and refurbishments/extensions. The review is a key component of the Water for the future – striking the balance which is the Draft ACT Water Strategy currently out for consultation.
“The review seeks new ways to significantly expand the acceptable mandated measures in place to achieve the targets while providing maximum flexibility for developers to lower costs,” Mr Corbell said.
The review will include a four-week consultation period where submissions will be invited through the ACT Government’s Time to Talk website as well as practitioner and community workshops.
