    At the Council's Ordinary Meeting on 23 May 2022, it was resolved:

    1. That Council:

    a. Approve the application of a charge for on-site sewage management to the Annual Rates Notice for affected properties, in a staged approach over five years, commencing from the beginning of the 2022/23 financial year.

    b. Approve the application of fees for additional inspections of high-risk on-site sewage management systems and re-inspections of non-compliant on-site sewage management systems.

    c. Note the results from the community consultation outlined in the report.

    d. Inform ratepayers in writing of the new on-site sewage management charge and provide further, detailed information to all affected ratepayers. This will involve advice to be sent to affected properties with the first rates Notice of 2022/23.

    e. Note that current Approvals to Operate will remain in place. An on-site sewage management charge will not be generated until the same financial year that the current approval expires. An annual approval to operate will then be issued in the name of the current owner(s) of the applicable properties.

    2. That the Shoalhaven Local Approvals Policy is amended post exhibition to reflect the on-site sewage management charge being applied to the Annual Rates Notice.
