The Devonport City Council has released its Stormwater Asset Management Plan for public comment.
Stormwater assets represent the largest asset group by number, and the second largest in value, with a combined replacement value of $137.7 million and an annual depreciation cost of more than $1.3 million.
The Plan details seven actions required for the management of stormwater assets (and services provided from these assets), compliance with regulatory requirements and funding needed to provide the required levels of service over a 10-year period.
It was prepared based on asset and financial data available as at December 2019 and does not take into account any of the current impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. In that sense it can be considered a “business as usual” approach.
Future reviews of the Plan will respond to the funding changes that are likely to occur due to the impacts of the pandemic.
Community members can view and comment on the Plan by visiting the Speak Up Devonport page on Council’s website.
The comment period will close at 5 p.m. on Friday 26 June 2020.
