Flood and Water Management Act 2010


231.Paragraph 13 provides for the Minister to make regulations on fees for applications for drainage approval. The provisions allow for the regulations to provide for fees to be determined by reference to criteria specified in the regulations, for instance the extent or nature of the construction works. The regulations can also provide for fees to be paid by reference to the costs of work done by the authority to process the approval. In making the regulations, the Minister must have regard to the desirability that the income from fees does not significantly exceed the costs incurred in processing an approval.
