IPART will commence its assessment of Hills Shire Council’s Box Hills Precinct Section 7.11 Development Contributions Plan (CP15)
Our assessment will consider whether CP15 meets the criteria as set out in the Department of Planning and Environment’s Practice Note. We will publish a Draft Report on our assessment findings and recommendations. At that time, we will welcome submissions from any interested parties.
The Council is preparing CP15 to collect contributions from new residential development. These contributions will fund upgrades to infrastructure in the area to meet a projected population increase of 49,000 people.
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 CP15.
