The Council has updated its Water Cycle Study to assess the constraints and requirements that will arise from growth on water infrastructure.
The overall objective of the Water Cycle Study is to understand the environmental and physical demands of the development and identify opportunities for more sustainable planning and improvements that may be required so that proposals don’t exceed the existing water cycle capacity. This is assessed by considering the following issues:
- Water resources;
- Water supply;
- Wastewater collection and treatment;
- Water quality and the environment;
- Flood risk; and
- Climate Change.
Due to its large file size, the Water Cycle Study Report and its appendices are provided as separate files to download below.
