Developing a New Process to Streamline Stormwater Quality Reporting & Compliance across all stages of Development

Presenter: Mircea Stancu, Cleanstormwater

Stormwater quality assessment and compliance are key components of Development Applications (DA) across Australia. Challenges in the current process can incur time and resource costs to both councils and consultants, with sub-optimal results. Traditionally, creating a WSUD report requires Consultants and Councils to spend large amounts of time scouring guidelines for obscure parameters and files, manually entering values in difficult-to-use software, and convoluted optimisation and reporting processes. This leads to submissions that are rife with errors, difficult to verify, and consume precious Council resources to assess, potentially contributing to suboptimal outcomes when WSUD assets are delivered.

This workshop will bring participants together to identify challenges faced by stakeholders in the WSUD assessment and reporting process. The workshop will provide a hands-on experience in using and developing digital automation tools to generate and assess typical WSUD reports as part of the DA process. Participants are then given the opportunity to discuss their experience regarding their processes, typical challenges, and identified improvements. This Workshop aims to provide participants with learnings and examples of how they can develop and implement their own internal processes to streamline WSUD assessments and reporting.

Suitable for:

  • Planning officers, policy makers, WSUD guidelines Authors
  • Council WSUD Engineers & Development Assessment Officers
  • Consultants (Civil, Stormwater, ESD)

    Date: Tuesday 8 October 2024
    Time: 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
