Development Contributions

Section 7.11 Local Contributions

Section 7.11 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act) authorises councils and other consent authorities to require contributions from developers for local infrastructure as part of their development approvals. Councils and accredited certifiers may only impose a contribution if it is of a kind allowed by and determined in accordance with a contributions plan, such as this plan.

Contributions of land, works and money from development of land throughout the LGA will be a key source funding for this new and upgraded local infrastructure.
