Infrastructure charges

Council adopted a new Charges Resolution and Implementation Policy which took effect from 14 August 2018 and replaced the Charges resolution and Implementation policy dated 11 December 2017. 

As a consequence of the increase to the maximum adopted charge taking effect from 1 September 2016, indexing of the charge stated in some of Council's Infrastructure charges notices (ICN) will now occur. The indexation will depend on the timing of the original development approval.

  Timing of infrastructure charges notice  Levying of infrastructure charges  Payment of infrastructure charges 
ICN issued in respect to a development approval originally issued between 1 July 2011 and 30 June 2015 As per the amount stated in the ICR / AICR at the time of the Decision notice / ICN Levied amount only.  
 2 ICN issued between 1 July 2015 and 31 August 2016 As per the amount stated in the ICR at the time of the Decision notice / ICN Levied amount + indexation up to date of payment capped at the maximum charge at the time of payment
 3 ICN issued between 1 September 2016 and 10 December 2017 As per the amount stated in the CR / ICR at the time of the Decision notice / ICN  Levied amount + indexation up to date of payment capped at the maximum charge at the time of payment
 ICN issued from 11 December 2017 to 13 August 2018 Amount stated in Schedule 3 of CR + indexation   Levied amount + indexation up to date of payment capped at the maximum charge at the time of payment
ICN issued from 14 August 2018   Amount stated in Schedule 3 of CR + indexation Levied amount + indexation up to date of payment capped at the maximum charge at the time of payment

Council has developed an IC spreadsheet calculator(XLSX, 43KB) to assist with this calculation where indexation now applies to Infrastructure charges notices. 

The amendments to the new CR include the following:

Section 6 Comparison of planning scheme use categories and adopted charge categories.

Update to the description of industrial use categories to align with the Planning Regulation 2017.

Section 18 (Conversion applications) and Section 19 (Conversion criteria)

Conversion applications and criteria has been combined into one section 18 with further clarification provided consistent with the Guidance for the Minister’s Guidelines and Rules. Reference to trunk infrastructure identified within the Netserv Plan required by the Distributor-retailer has been removed; the criteria now only relates to trunk infrastructure provided to and owned by the Local Government for development infrastructure under the Act.

Schedule 1: Dictionary

The amendment of the definition of “Netserv Plan”.

Schedule 2 (Superseded Planning Scheme Tables) and Schedule 3 (Adopted Charges)

Update to the description of industrial use categories to align with the current Planning Regulation.

Schedule 4 Item 6

A reference to the procedure outlined in Appendix 1, Section (4) of the Charges resolution implementation policy (No 8) has been added.

Implementation Policy

Section 2: Intent

Updated to include Charges resolution (No 7) 2017 as a superseded version.

Section 16: Conversion Applications

Updated to refer to Section 18 of the resolution.

Appendix 1, Section (4)

Updated to include the default method for calculating the valuation of land within Infrastructure Charges Resolution based on the Guidance for Minister’s Guidelines and Rules.

  1. Open the IC spreadsheet calculator(XLSX, 43KB)
  2. On the "Input & Result" tab, update the spreadsheet with the following information
    Field  Details 
    Date levied Insert the date the original Development approval was given, i.e. the date of the original Decision notice. 
    Note: the initial levied charge rate may be subject to indexation up to the date of payment and capped at the maximum charge rate in accordance with s112 of Planning Act 2016. e.g. 1/10/2017
    Date payable Insert the date ending the last financial quarter, e.g. 30/06/2018
    Initial levied charge rate  Insert the initial levied charge rate from the original ICN issued with the original decision notice, e.g. $17,215.35
  3. The indexed charge is then automatically calculated and stated in the green box on the right hand side. If this amount is greater than the maximum capped amount, then the maximum capped amount applies in accordance with the Planning Act. 
  4. Apply the new indexed charge rate to the relevant development. 

Approvals issued prior to 1 July 2011 did not receive Infrastructure charges notices for infrastructure networks controlled by Council. Instead a condition of the development approval set out the requirements for any infrastructure contribution.

For any existing development approval including a condition in the development approval requiring a contribution in accordance with a Planning scheme policy, request an Infrastructure contributions advice statement updated calculation.

Developer Contribution charge rates for DAs approved prior to the 29 October 2009 (Caboolture District)

Under Caboolture ShirePlan, for development approvals granted prior to 29 October 2009 (in accordance with PSP19A (Stormwater Network Developer Contributions) and PSP21A (Transport Network Developer Contributions), the following charges rates apply:

Note the charges rates listed in the above links are subject to indexation and will be updated accordingly.

If the condition has been amended at some time in the past and now requires a contribution instead in accordance with the Charges resolution, unless stated otherwise in the condition, the current maximum adopted charge rate will apply.
