Government made easy
The program is contributing to a modern government by streamlining the water licensing and approval system, ensuring a smoother customer experience, and improved coordination between government agencies involved.
The program is a vital component of the NSW Government’s commitment to deliver a better planning system and reduced timeframes for planning assessments.
Our aim is to simplify the licensing process and minimise red tape, leading to great public benefits for the people of NSW.
Supporting regional productivity
We recognise the significance of water for regional communities, and this program aims to streamline access to licensing services.
By minimising the need for in-person processes, customers in rural areas will have more time to spend with their communities and businesses, and less time on paperwork.
Measuring benefits for customers
Our goal is to make a tangible and positive difference for customers when applying for and managing water licenses and approvals.
The NSW government is committed to transparency, so within the upcoming months, we will be sharing how we measure the benefits of this program and its results.
Keeping customers informed
The Water Group will collaborate with WaterNSW and NRAR to ensure customers are kept up to date on upcoming changes and improvements to the water licensing processes and policies. This will be done through existing customer newsletters, online information sessions, and updates on this website.
