Local Infrastructure Contributions

Council collects contributions from developers to provide local infrastructure and facilities under section 7.11 and section 7.12 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. These funds are essential to ensure our infrastructure meets the needs of our growing population.

This type of local infrastructure typically includes local roads, stormwater and drainage, shared pathways, parks and playgrounds or other recreational areas, environmental land and community facilities.

Contributions are levied through the development assessment process enabling Council to place a condition of consent on certain types of development to require the payment of contributions.

Council's Local Infrastructure Contributions Plans outlines the process for collecting and expending local infrastructure contributions.

Please note all contributions are indexed quarterly in accordance with CPI - All Groups Index for Sydney.
