Water Allocation System
On March 28, 2011, Council adopted the Water Allocation System for Planning Approvals Policy (Policy 11-02). The Policy sets out the details on the requirements and direction of the allocation process and guides planning approvals.
On August 19, 2013, Council amended a number of clauses within the Policy based on a request from the Developer community and Town Administration’s review. Please consult the Policy for more information on the allocation system and affected areas:
