Business customers who are unable to comply with the Level 1 restrictions are required to apply for an exemption using the following form. Exemption requests will be assessed on an individual basis.
If you're requesting an exemption, we're asking you to outline how you're contributing to water savings in other ways, so we ask that you review and tick those water saving measures that you have applied in your business.
Our large volumes of exemptions applications have resulted in extended processing times and you will receive a response from us within 10-15 working days. Until your exemption is granted our Community Water Officers will not be enforcing restriction breaches but we ask that you are mindful with your water use while you are waiting for your exemption to be processed.
We will contact you via email to let you know the outcome of your request. If approved, you will receive a confirmation email which will serve as your exemption approval
