Charges resolution amendments

The amendments to the new CR include the following:

Alignment with amendments to the Planning Regulation 2017

On 11 August 2017, the State Government amended the Planning Regulation to increase the prescribed amount for infrastructure charges in accordance with the 3-yearly moving average Producer Price Index. Schedule 3: Adopted Charges in the CR has been amended to align with the new rates in the Planning Regulation.

Indexation of suburb based land values.

The suburb based land values in the Implementation Policy have been updated to reflect land indexation over the 2016/17 Financial Year. Council uses these rates to establish an initial offer for land contributions.
