Development Contributions


Section 7.11 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979 enables Councils in New South Wales to levy contributions upon a development where that development generates an increased demand upon Council's services and facilities.

This power is intended to ensure that the existing ratepayers are not required to meet the cost of providing for new roads, community centres, libraries, open space and recreation facilities, the need for which arises from incoming populations occupying new residential developments.

Section 7.11 can also be applied to non-residential development such as retail, commercial or industrial development, to meet increased demand for car-parking, road construction or traffic management.

To implement Section 7.11, Councils must prepare a Contribution Plan. The plan identifies and costs all the works/facilities and land acquisitions necessary to meet the needs of the incoming population and calculates what contribution payment is required for each new residential lot, villa, townhouse or apartment.
