We'd like your feedback on the Draft Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) Policy and Strategy.
Byron Shire Council has developed a progressive WSUD Policy and Strategy that seeks to modernise and improve internal and external practice with respect to water-sensitive urban design and water-cycle management across Byron Shire. The Policy and Strategy are supported by a series of actions.
We recognise the increasing need for sound storm-water management and WSUD's linkages with potable water consumption, recycled water use and local ecological outcomes. We also recognise the potential implications of climate change and seek outcomes that respond to emerging science and practice in this area.
The strategy includes information about:
- Council's WSUD planning, processes and capacity.
- Community understanding and engagement with WSUD.
- Increasing funding to implement, operate and maintain WSUD infrastructure.
- Improvements to WSUD outcomes delivered to Council in planning applications by third parties.
