What’s this about?
The Department of Planning and Environment – Water Group are simplifying the laws managing private irrigation boards, private drainage boards and private water trusts (joint private works schemes). By applying parts of the Water Management Amendment Act 2010 we will:
- cut red tape by reducing the need for the NSW Government's approval for administrative matters
- give schemes more flexibility to make and amend their own rules
- allow the creation of private water corporations and the conversion of private water trusts to private water corporations.
To implement the changes, we are working with joint private works schemes to make clear and simple regulations and rules.
