Public notices

A list of current works approval applications, including information on how to object.

Public notices banner

Certain types of water use approval applications and water management work approval applications need to be advertised in the public domain, according to the Water Management Act 2000 and the Water Management (General) Regulation 2018. This is to allow members of the community to object to the application before a determination is made.

As of December 2021, notices will no longer be advertised in media outlets. Instead they will appear on this page of our website for a period of 28 days.

The public notices describe the type of approval being applied for, the location, the water source or floodplain management plan area involved, the applicant’s name, and, if it is for a water management work, how it would be used. The notice also includes information about how to object and the deadline.

NRAR considers the issues raised in all valid objections submitted by the community and tries to resolve them. We also let all objectors know the outcome.

For details on which applications need to be advertised and those which don’t, see the relevant legislation.
