Planning and Environment Paper: Changes to water and wastewater services in South-East Queensland under the SEQ Water (Distribution and Retail Restructuring) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2011

Allconnex customers will receive water and wastewater services from their local council from 1 July 2012 after the SEQ Water (Distribution and Retail Restructuring) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2011 was passed on 14 February 2012.

The Act will allow the Gold Coast, Redland and Logan City Councils to withdraw their business from Allconnex and establish their own Council water businesses.

In this paper, partner Sarah Persijn and trainee solicitor Matthew Jeffrey outline the provisions of the new Act and discuss how water and waste-water services will be transitioned from Allconnex to the relevant government areas.
