The Local Infrastructure Contributions Direction 2012, as amended in December 2018, caps the local infrastructure contributions for residential development that the council can levy under CP13.
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”.
This will allow the council to levy:
- Until 30 June 2020, up to a maximum of $45,000 and see funding from the NSW Government to meet any shortfall between that amount and the contribution amount under the plan, and
- From July 2020 onwards, up to the maximum amount under the plan.
