ABOUT THE FRAMEWORK
WHAT THE WSUD MAINTENANCE COMPLIANCE FRAMEWORK WILL DO
The Australian stormwater industry has been struggling for a long time to ensure that private and public Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) assets are being managed properly. Local Government was needing a clear pathway on how to improve this management of WSUD assets, and this is what the WSUD Maintenance Compliance Framework will do.
The Framework is a package of information, resources, and tools that local governments can use to support the implementation of compliance programs that improve the maintenance of WSUD systems. It will provide instructions on how to operate a WSUD maintenance compliance program, resources to manage the program and engage with stakeholders, and a legal foundation for WSUD maintenance compliance programs.
This website is the home for the WSUD Maintenance Compliance Framework.
The mission is to create a WSUD maintenance solution for Councils with Councils. Through a collaborative and engaged approach with Councils and other important stakeholders, the goal is to create a Framework that contains everything a Council needs to implement and operate a WSUD maintenance compliance program.
The vision is to create a sustainably managed urban environment where WSUD maintenance compliance is an integral part of local government stormwater management practices. This leads to all WSUD assets being managed properly, which creates the many environmental, economic and social benefits that WSUD can provide.
