Review of The Hills Shire Council’s revised Contributions Plan no 15 - Box Hill (2020)

In progress
Start Date
Mar 2020
End Date
Dec 2020

On 3 June 2020, we placed our assessment of The Hills Shire Council’s draft revised Contributions Plan No 15 – Box Hill Precinct (CP15) on hold.

We commenced our assessment of CP15 in March 2020. Our assessment is on hold while the council prepares a response to our request for information. We require this information to complete our assessment.


The Local Infrastructure Contributions Direction 2012, as amended in December 2019, caps the local infrastructure contributions for residential development that the council can levy under CP15.

The plan must be assessed by IPART and the council must make any changes requested by the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces (the Minister), in order for the council to levy contributions above $30,000 per residential lot or dwelling.

Once the council makes the necessary amendments, the plan will become an “IPART-reviewed contributions plan”.


We will assess whether CP15 meets the criteria set out in the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s Practice Note (January 2019) and publish a Draft Report on our assessment findings and associated recommendations.

For a period of four weeks after publishing our Draft Report, we will accept submissions related to the assessment criteria from any interested parties. We may also conduct targeted consultation earlier in the assessment process.


The contributions plan covers the Box Hill Precinct in North West Sydney.

What Next

We will resume our assessment when the council has provided its response to our request for information.  

We will update the timetable on our website when we have resumed our assessment.
