Review of the National Urban Water Planning Principles (2013-2014)

​Publication details

​Department of the Environment, May 2015

This review of the 2008 National Urban Water Planning Principles was undertaken by the Australian Government Department of the Environment during 2013-14 in consultation with the states and territories. The review was in response to recommendations by the Productivity Commission, the National Water Commission and Infrastructure Australia.

The objective of the review was to assess the uptake of the Principles and identify opportunities for improvements. The findings and recommendations were informed by a number of case studies undertaken by independent consultant Marsden Jacob Associates, which sought to elicit insights into the implementation of urban water planning.

The review found the Principles remain useful. It identified opportunities for further improvements including defining some key terms and explaining them in the context of local circumstances to make them more accessible. The review provides a platform for the states and territories to use in the ongoing sharing of information on urban water planning concepts and practices.
