Gold Coast Weekly | Issue #17 | Corporate Plan

We're creating a city inspired by lifestyle and driven by opportunity. Help shape the future of the Gold Coast by having your say on our Corporate Plan.

Issue #17: In this week's edition, we're bringing you details on Plumbing Assist eligibility, how you can get involved this National Volunteer Week and inviting you to have your say on our City Corporate Plan. 

Are you eligible for Plumbing Assist?

Are you eligible for Plumbing Assist?

Do you hold a concession card, own and occupy one property, and have dripping taps or a water leak that you just can’t afford to fix?

Plumbing Assist is a free service offered by the City to eligible customers that need a helping hand. The service includes a free water leak audit and (limited) repair or replacement of inefficient or leaking water fittings and fixtures.

Repairing minor water leaks can save an average household from $20 to $200 in water usage charges per year. Updating showerheads and toilet cisterns to dual flush can save even more.

Find out if you're eligible for Plumbing Assist by visiting our website today.
