Water Bill Exposure Draft 

The Property Council has provided its comments to the Office of Living Victoria on the review of Victoria's laws which regulate water management and use.

In December 2013, the Minister for Water released a Water Bill Exposure Draft, which proposes to amalgamate and streamline the two main pieces of legislation governing the management and use of water: the Water Act 1989 and the Water Industry Act 1994.

In its submission, the Property Council outlined several concerns about changes contained in the Water Bill Exposure Draft, which relate to the access and acquisition of land.
