Final Determination: Water and Sewerage Capital Contribution Code
On Friday 8 December 2017 the Commission released its final determination on the Water and Sewerage Capital Contribution Code proposed by Icon Water.
The Commission accepts the need for a Capital Contribution Code and believes the Code represents a fairer and more transparent way of charging for infrastructure upgrades than the arrangement it will replace.
The charge and associated projects will be subject to annual review by the Commission.
The Code takes effect from 1 January 2018, with an 18 month transition period for properties purchased prior to the commencement date.
