The SEPP commenced on 1 March 2011.

State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Drinking Water Catchment) 2011 (the SEPP) has three main aims:

  • To provide for healthy water catchments that will deliver high quality water and permit development that is compatible with that goal
  • To ensure that consent authorities only allow proposed developments that have a neutral or beneficial effect on water quality
  • To support water quality objectives in the Sydney drinking water catchment.

The SEPP commenced on 1 March 2011. Detailed maps showing the location and boundaries of Sydney's drinking water catchment are available to download.
