Review of The Hills Shire Council's Contributions Plan no 13 - North Kellyville Precinct

In progress
Start Date
Nov 2018
End Date
Sep 2019

On 11 June 2019, we placed our assessment of The Hills Shire Council’s  draft revised Contributions Plan No 13 – North Kellyville Precinct (CP13) on hold.

IPART commenced its assessment of CP13 in November 2018.  We completed our draft assessment of the plan in May 2019 and provided a draft assessment report to the council and the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for comment.

Our assessment is on hold while the council prepares its response to our draft assessment.


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.
CP13 applies to the North Kellyville Precinct of the Hills Shire LGA in Sydney’s North West Growth Area.

What Next

We will resume our assessment when the council has provided its response to our draft assessment. 

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