The Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) forms part of the Planning Scheme.
The LGIP identifies the local government's plans for trunk infrastructure that is necessary to service urban development at a desired standard of service in a coordinated, efficient and financially sustainable manner.
The LGIP contains assumptions about the projected population, housing and employment growth. It documents the desired standards of service (DSS) and demand for infrastructure. Plans For Trunk Infrastructure (PFTI) identify the key infrastructure needed to service the existing and projected growth.
The LGIP details what trunk infrastructure is required, where it is required, when it is required and why it is required, allowing council to be in a better position to make decisions about development and funding allocations.
The LGIP is formed in accordance with the Planning Act 2016 and the Statutory guideline 03/14 Local Government Infrastructure Plans.
The LGIP is located in Part 4 and Schedule 3 of the Planning Scheme
