Submissions close Monday 3 November 2020

At its meeting held on 24 August 2020, Council resolved to exhibit the Draft North Sydney Local Infrastructure Contributions Plan (the draft plan) in accordance with section 28 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000. The draft plan, schedule and maps of where the local infrastructure is to be delivered under the plan are available document library.

The draft plan has been developed in accordance with s7.11 and s7.12 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

It is based on a horizon of 16 years. The estimated growth in the Local Government Area up until 2036 includes 11,902 new residents and 16,746 new workers.

The draft plan will apply a mix of s 7.11 contributions for new residential development that has an increased demand and a 1% s 7.12 levy for all other development (+ alterations & additions that have not previously attracted a levy) with a cost greater than $100,000.

The draft plan draws upon existing Council policies and will provide valuable income for Council to meet the growing needs and changing demographics of the community.

It is expected that approximately $195 million will be raised over the life of the plan and will be used to service almost half of the $401 million works program identified in the plan.

Items on the works program relate to significant contributions to public domain areas, open space and recreation facilities, active transport and community facilities. This will enable Council to provide an important income stream to assist with the delivery of local infrastructure to meet growth in the community.

The Draft North Sydney Local Infrastructure Contributions Plan is on exhibition between 15 September 2020 to 3 November 2020.
