Industry Alert – Changes to Application to Connect:
Plumbers, developers, builders: from Monday 5 March 2018, if you’re requesting sewer, water, recycled water connection, repair or amendment you will need to use an updated application form Application for water and sewer connection.
The form now references updated Conditions of Connection which you will need to acknowledge prior to submission.
The Conditions of Connection have been designed to ensure poperty owners, plumbers, developers and builders will have a clear understanding of the technical and/or regulatory requirements for sewer, water, recycled water connection, repair or amendment.
Upon receipt of the Consent to Connect (VBA number), you’ll need to ensure the owner is in receipt of the Conditions of Connection.
Things to know:
- The updated form will be available to download from our website from Friday 2 March 2018. If you have saved a copy of the old form, please delete it and replace it with the new one.
- When you receive the Consent to Connect you must follow the conditions relevant to the work being conducted.
If you have any questions or concerns, call 1300 656 007 (business hours) and ask to talk to a member of the Connections team.
