Gaining permits from local councils is a crucial step in the process of installing a Worm Farm Waste System, which is why the A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems team are happy to take on this responsibility for you!
With the wealth of experience the A&A team has in liaising with councils along with their personable nature, the permit application process is made simple and easy. The A&A team will manage your application during its approval process and do not charge for this service.
One of the most commonly asked questions is “Will council allow me to install this system in my area?”
The answer is YES!
Not only do councils allow the Worm Farm Waste System to be installed, in this age of sustainability they welcome it!
The key to gaining council approval is to submit an application which gives your council all the relevant information they need. Most councils require a Land Capability Assessment sometimes called a soil percolation report to be submitted with the permit application. A geotechnical engineer needs to be engaged to carry out an analysis of your property and then produce a report.
The factors taken into consideration by the geotechnical engineer when producing the report include the quantity of wastewater generated – for a domestic dwelling this is calculated by looking at the number of bedrooms, soil conditions, and environmental features such as dams, rivers, creeks, bores etc. and the aspect of the property.
The A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems team can help by recommending a geotechnical engineering company in your area for you to engage.
What we require from you for the permit application:
- A site plan
- A floor plan
- A copy of the certificate of title for the property ( some councils require this )
- Payment of the permit fee
The A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems team will use the information provided in the LCA to design a site specific system which is appropriate for you property. This design will be overlayed on the site plan you provide and submitted to council as part of the permit application.
A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems are in contact with councils throughout the eastern and central states every day and intimately understand the processes that need to be followed in order to gain approval to install a Worm Farm Waste System
