Catchment Management Authorities (Hunter Central Rivers) Regulation 2010

The Hunter-Central Rivers Catchment Management Authority Regulation 2005 will be automatically repealed in 2010. The Regulatory Impact Statement identifies the objectives of the new Regulation and options for achieving these objectives.

The Hunter-Central Rivers Catchment Management Authority Regulation 2005 contains provisions regarding the generation of revenue from a levy on rateable land in the Hunter Valley catchment. The revenue generated from this levy enables the Hunter-Central Rivers Catchment Management Authority to meet its legislative obligations under the Water Management Act 2000 and its resource condition and management targets in the Hunter-Central Rivers Catchment Action Plan.

A benefit-cost analysis found that remaking the existing Regulation would provide the greatest net benefits to the community and would be more equitable than alternative approaches to implementing a levy.
