Council has adopted a Construction Bonds Management Policy. It provides guidance for the handling of bonds that are associated with the development process, but remain unclaimed after seven years.

The policy outlines the process Council will undertake to manage unclaimed engineering bonds, including on-site stormwater detention bonds and security bonds such as damage deposit, kerb and gutter, footpath, gully pits, redundant layback, and restoration bonds.

Council asked for feedback on the draft policy in December 2018 and January 2019. One submission was received. The response to this submission can be found by clicking here.
