You will need this approval if you intend to install, construct or alter an onsite sewage management system. This approval is required to ensure building standards and minimum health and safety standards are met.
Onsite sewage management systems include portable toilets, septic tanks, aerobic treatment units, compost toilets or any other apparatus used for the treatment of sewage. It also includes any of the tanks, beds, sewers, drains, pipes, fittings, fixtures and land used in connection to this system.
Please note that:
- plumbing and drainage work can only be carried out by individuals that hold the relevant professional licences
- this approval will often be granted as part of a Development Application process.
