Development contributions

New additional residential and commercial developments place additional demand on our infrastructure such as our road network, community facilities and parks.

The Council charges development contributions to ensure developers pay a fair share of the cost of providing additional infrastructure to service growth demand.

About development contributions

New residential and commercial developments make demands on the City's resources and services such as the transport network, water supply and parks.

Development contributions policy

How development contributions are calculated and charged, and what assets the Council has or will provide.

Development contributions assessments and charges

The amount you have to pay depends on the property's location, and how many household equivalent units (HUEs) of demand your development project may add.

Development contributions rebate schemes

The Council has three development contributions rebate schemes to promote development that benefits the wider community.
