Land Capability Assessment

Any planning permit application for a development within an unsewered area is required to be accompanied by a Land Capability Assessment (LCA) - a report that may need to be submitted to Council if a septic system (on-site wastewater management system) is planned to treat wastewater from a residential development.

The LCA will:

  • Show Council if the proposed site is capable of sustainably managing the household’s wastewater within allotment boundaries;
  • Identify a management program to put in place to minimise the health and environmental impacts of on-site wastewater management.

Further information can be sought in the following information sheet attachments.
