Land Capability Assessments

A Land Capability Assessment is a report prepared by a qualified consultant that assesses the various aspects of a site and determines the capability of the land to sustain a wastewater system.

A Land Capability Assessment (LCA) is required for new dwellings that are located within Special Water Supply Catchment Areas (also referred to as ‘Open, Potable Water Supply Catchments’).  You may also be asked to supply a LCA if Council’s Environmental Health Officer identifies site specific constraints that may impact the environment.

More information on the level of detail required for LCA's is contained with the Pyrenees Shire's Domestic Wastewater Management Plan(PDF, 3MB) and the Victorian Land Capability Assessment Framework(PDF, 1MB) documents.
