The completeness of an application directly impacts the length of time it takes to process a water licence application.
During the water licensing process, the applicant may be required to submit additional information and/or documents.
Once received, the information and/or documents must be made available to parties for a review period relevant to the quantity of additional information submitted.
The additional time required for the applicant to respond with additional information and/or documents and for parties to review the additional information increases considerably the amount of time it will take to process the application.
The IWB encourages applicants to get in touch with the IWB early and often when considering applying for a water licence.
