4. Standardise the standards
The Parramatta River’s catchment spans 11 local government areas. To create a swimmable river, we need to work together to standardise policies and practices that impact water quality, such as approaches to baseline measurements, installation of rainwater tanks and creation of raingardens.
This project has identified the appropriate policies, planning instruments and sustainable funding mechanisms that will support the goals of the Parramatta River Masterplan.
Establish a whole of catchment land use policy and statutory planning mechanisms.

Comments and feedback have been incorporated into the draft options paper and the Discussion Paper. The Delivery Engine team is working with our consultants at Civille to develop the recommendations paper. This recommendations paper will provide the ways and means to influence the different parts of the NSW planning system to ensure that the objectives of the Masterplan are embedded in legislation, and the mechanisms councils can adopt within their Local Strategic Planning Statements, Local Environment Plans and Development Control Plans that will standardise the standards across local government areas. A small Project Control Group has been convened, with representatives from DPIE, Sydney Water, PRCG and Councils to help develop the Recommendations Report.
