Local Infrastructure Contributions Plan


A local infrastructure contribution plan for the purposes of s.7.11 (formerly s.94) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979, applies to all land in the North Sydney Council local government area (LGA).

The Contributions Plan sets out the amount of contributions payable and is generally determined depending upon where the proposed development is located within the LGA, the type of development proposed (e.g. residential or commercial) and the intensity of that development (e.g. the amount of additional dwellings or commercial floor space). The Contributions Plan also documents the rationale and justification for the contributions and the contribution rates applicable. It also includes works schedules which indicate what facilities are to be provided.


Annually Adjusted

Local infrastructure contributions are adjusted annually by the consumer price index, and are detailed in the below table for the current year.

If contributions are not paid within one year of a development consent being issued, the contributions will be subject to a further consumer price index adjustment. The adjusted contributions rates payable can be determined by contacting Council’s Financial Services department on 9936 8100.


2013 Amendments to Contributions Plan

On 3 June 2013, Council resolved to adopt an amended version of "North Sydney Section 94 Contributions Plan 2003" to be now known as "North Sydney Section 94 Contributions Plan".  This Contributions Plan came into effect on the 20 June 2013.

The revised Contributions Plan has been amended to extend the timeframe to which it applies and to reflect changes made to the development contributions system since the original "North Sydney Section 94 Contributions Plan 2003" came into effect in 2004. The amendments incorporated into the revised Contributions Plan do not affect contributions rates or the amount of contributions that will be levied on relevant development consents.
