Head works are a fee payable to the Water Corporation.
The head works contribution fee is a compulsory payment to the Water Corporation for the construction of additional dwellings on the building site in order to receive the building permit. A credit is given for the original dwelling, resulting in the fee being payable only for additional dwellings.
It is payable by anyone increasing the potential demand for water, waste or drainage services to an existing site in Western Australia.
The Water Corporation has standard fees for each additional dwelling that can found on the Water Corporation website.
On larger unit sites, it is recommended that you consult with your builder to determine the most economical outcome for the project.
