WSUD Planning Policy Presentations


Clearwater and Melbourne Water’s Living Rivers program held a WSUD Planning Policy Forum on June 6 in 2017. The forum was well attended by Local Government Living Rivers contacts, Melbourne Water staff and representatives from DELWP and MAV.

The forum showcased innovative planning approaches that address the existing gaps in WSUD planning policy and deliver effective solutions to improving WSUD outcomes in new urban development – including infill development.

These local government presentations and case studies provided an overview of four different policy mechanisms, including implementation issues/pitfalls and successes, to achieve improved stormwater management.
