Infrastructure charges resolution

To align with the new Planning Act 2016, on 25 July 2016 the State Government increased the adopted charges for infrastructure under the State Planning Regulatory Provisions. This is the first time since the introduction of the charges in 2011 that maximum charges have increased. 

To allow for Council to levy the new maximum adopted charge, on 16 August 2016 Council adopted a new Infrastructure Charges Resolution (ICR) and Infrastructure Charges Resolution Implementation Policy (ICR Implementation Policy).

Amendments have been made to the adopted charges found in Schedule 3 of the ICR to align with the increased maximum adopted charges released by the State Government on the 29 July 2016. Notably, Schedule 3 remains unchanged except for the application of the maximum charge values. 

The ICR and ICR Implementation Policy take effect from 1 September 2016. On 4 October 2016, Council adopted updated suburb based land values in Appendix 1 of the ICR Implementation Policy. The updated values reflect land indexation over the 2015/2016 Financial Year. The amended ICR Implementation Policy takes effect from 10 October 2016.
