Development Contributions

Council may require a developer to pay contributions towards the provision of public amenities and services as part of carrying out a development. There are two Contributions Plans: 

  • Section 7.11 Contributions Plan – Heavy Vehicles: (PDF 214.5KB) contributions from development that generates heavy vehicle traffic contribute towards the cost of maintaining and reconstruction of roads affected by the development.  
  • Section 7.12 Contributions Plan: (PDF 3.1MB) contributions are levied and contribute towards roads and related infrastructure, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, open space and recreation facilities, and civic and community facilities. The contribution rate is a levy based on a percentage of the proposed cost of carrying out the development.
