Blacktown City Council is one of the more advanced Councils in Sydney in regard to the management of stormwater on private property. Development Applications require applicants to address WSUD as part of the design and enter into multi-year agreements for the maintenance of stormwater and rainwater systems.
As a minimum, private property owners are required to submit an annual stormwater maintenance report to Blacktown City Council by 1 September each year. This report must detail the inspection and maintenance activities carried out on-site over the previous 12 months, including any waste disposal dockets.
The stormwater inspection and maintenance sheets in this guide can be submitted as part of the annual maintenance report or can be submitted to Council as inspection and maintenance activities are undertaken.
Blacktown City Council reviews the reports to ensure appropriate maintenance is occurring and are authorised under the Local Government Act 1993 to enter premises and serve penalty notices for failure to comply with maintenance requirements set out in the Positive Covenant.
Stormwater Sydney can provide one-off or ongoing scheduled maintenance arrangements for all your stormwater and rainwater needs. These include Strata and Residential Complexes, Aged Care and Commercial Facilities and Industrial sites.
