Draft NSW Water Strategy
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) has published the Draft NSW Water Strategy, which is aimed at improving the resilience of the state’s water resources over the coming decades.
The Draft NSW Water Strategy will be on public exhibition from 15 February to 28 March 2020. DPIE is aiming to brief local government on the development of the strategy, its priorities and timelines for finalising the strategy. This includes explaining its relationship with other programs like the new Town Water Risk Reduction Program and the regional water strategies.
To find out more:
- A webinar will be held on Thursday 25 February from 2pm to 3.30 pm exclusively for local government on the development of the strategy, its priorities and the timelines for the final strategy, followed by a Q&A session.
Register here and dial in via the registration details on the day.
- Visit the DPIE website for more information and to read the draft strategy. You can have your say by providing written feedback to DPIE. Submissions close at 11.59pm (AEST) on Sunday 28 March 2021.

LGNSW will also be making a submission in on the Draft Strategy and invites comments from councils to assist us in representing the views of local government. Please direct comments to Sanjiv Sathiah, LGNSW Senior Policy Officer.
