Water corporations are a Referral Authorities under the Planning and Environment Act 1987 and will exercise functions under the new PPF to ensure the ongoing provision of critical water supply and sewerage services. The VicWater submission focused on these critical functions.
The submission has three parts: (1) a cover letter, and (2) a summary document which identifies priority water industry issues and makes recommendations for the final version of the PPF. These are both published below. A track changes version of the PPF (3) was also provided, with suggested changes for consideration by the Ministerial Advisory Committee.
