Infrastructure Charges and Incentives

Council has reviewed its infrastructure Charges Framework and resolved to adopt a new Infrastructure Charge Resolution and to review its Incentives Policy.

Council’s Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution was adopted and came into effect on 1 March 2022.
The purpose of the resolution is to establish and adopt infrastructure charges for water, sewerage, transport, stormwater and parks/community land networks.

Under the Planning Act 2016, infrastructure charges are triggered and levied on development approvals for reconfiguring a lot (RAL), material change of use (MCU) and building work (BD/DBW) as a contribution towards the cost of trunk infrastructure provided to service development.

For development approved prior to 1 July 2011, infrastructure contributions and/or charges continue to apply in accordance with the development approval and legislation at the time issued. All development approvals issued on and from 1 July 2011 are currently governed by local government adopted infrastructure charges resolutions.
