Introduction of Water Licence Fees
The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation are proposing to introduce water licence application and renewal fees of up to $6,668 for each licence in a regulated catchment. There is currently no charge for this service.
Implementation of such charges may have a serious impact on your business. Wines of WA strongly urges you to write directly to Minister for Water, Dave Kelly, expressing your opposition to the proposed fees.
Wines of WA will continue to work with allied agriculture industry groups to advocate against the proposed fees. However, direct input from industry is critical part of this.
