Workshops will be conducted on the Central Coast water supply system to give community members input into the Central Coast Council’s submission to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART), which is about to set water, sewerage and stormwater prices for 2019 through to 2023.
IPART sets the prices for the water, sewerage and stormwater services provided by Central Coast Council.
Council currently operates under two pricing determinations, one for the former Gosford Local Government Area and one for the former Wyong Local Government Area.
The most recent determined pricing period was June 1, 2013 to June 30, 2017.
IPART agreed to defer the next review until 2018, to allow the amalgamated Central Coast Council to prepare a comprehensive pricing proposal.
Council’s final submission will outline proposed service levels and prices for water, sewerage and stormwater.
Current prices will not change until a new determination is made.
Any changes as a result of the new determination will come in to effect from July 1, 2019.
Council has been undertaking consultation with the community as part of drafting its submission to IPART.
Over 1,300 people completed a survey and the results will be available shortly.
Council will hold two workshops as another step in its submission preparation.
The Wyong workshop will be held at the Council Chambers in Hely St, on July 19, from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
Another workshop will take place at The Erina Centre, Erina Fair, from 10:00am to 12:00pm on Wednesday, July 18.
Following Council’s submission, IPART will release an Issues Paper and hold public hearings, where the public will have the opportunity to provide further comment.
