New Land Development Manual now available

Barwon Water has launched a new, user-friendly Land Development Manual (LDM).

Demonstrating our goal to continually improve the way we work and communicate with our customers and stakeholders, the new LDM has been extensively overhauled and rewritten to improve the experience for users.

It is now more concise, more intuitive and written in plain English language, so even those who are not professionally involved in the land development industry can easily navigate and understand the contents.

We began work on improving the LDM as a response to feedback from our developers and consultants in late 2010. The revamped Barwon Water LDM was revealed at this year's Developers, Contractors and Consultants Forum on Wednesday 28 March.

It has been an enormous effort to develop the new Barwon Water LDM. We would like to thank our legal advisers Russell Kennedy for their invaluable expertise in helping us to produce such a quality publication in the agreed timeframe.

Anyone who is using an earlier version is advised to download the new LDM from our website (under the 'Business customers' tab), or you can request a hard copy be sent to you.

If you have any questions or comments, or would like to request a hard copy of the LDM, please call 1300 656 007 or email
