We are reviewing the Austral and Leppington North Precinct Contributions Plan
IPART is seeking feedback on its draft findings and draft recommendations on Liverpool City Council’s Austral and Leppington North Section 7.11 Development Contributions Plan (ALN CP). The Council has prepared the ALN CP to collect contributions from new residential and non-residential development. These contributions will fund new and upgraded infrastructure and land within the area, to provide open space, community, stormwater and transport facilities within the development area. The infrastructure covered by the plan will serve the new development within the area, to accommodate 16,000 new dwellings, a town centre, commercial, retail, industrial, business, education, community precincts expected to result in a residential population of almost 58,000 people and an additional 13,000 jobs within the area.
Our draft decision is that the Contributions Plan is reasonable
After reviewing the ALN CP, our draft findings and draft recommendations are that the ALN CP is reasonable although the rate of contributions is likely to be low. These draft findings and recommendations, and the reasons we have made them, are set out in our Draft Report. We welcome submissions from any interested parties.
Our assessment considers whether the ALN CP meets the criteria as set out in the Department of Planning and Environment’s Practice Note.
After considering submissions, we will provide our final assessment and recommendations to the Minister. The Minister, or their Nominee, will advise the council on any changes it needs to make prior to adopting the plan. The council will then be entitled to charge the applicable contributions rates in the ALN CP.
Have your say
We encourage all stakeholders to have their say on our Draft Report by 9 June 2023.
