Frequently Asked Questions


In December 2018, the Council initiated Amendment 207 for the purpose of introducing a development contribution framework.

The Shire has recently received consent to advertise its proposed Community Infrastructure Development Contribution Plan for public consultation.

The proposal has been developed under the framework of the State Government’s State Planning Policy 3.6, which guides the process of how development contributions for infrastructure are managed.

What is the proposed Community Infrastructure Development Contribution Plan?

The Shire’s proposed Community Infrastructure Development Contribution Plan acknowledges the fact that new residential development places additional pressure on existing community facilities, as well as generating the need for additional and expanded community facilities.

Through a shared partnership between Shire funding and developer contributions, the Shire can ensure necessary community infrastructure is provided at the right time and scale in response to growth occurring.

When will community infrastructure be delivered?

The Shire is committed to delivering community infrastructure in a timely manner to meet the needs of residents and the broader community.

The Shire’s proposal is based upon equity and transparency, to ensure our community and the development industry can have full confidence in how funds are managed and infrastructure provided.

Who makes a contribution under the proposed plan?

Landowners who choose to subdivide/develop more than one single dwelling will be required to make a proportional contribution towards a shared funding for community infrastructure which has been identified as necessary to meet our new community needs.

The contribution is proportionately based with contributions based on the total forecast dwellings in a particular area and the community infrastructure that will be needed.

The Shire currently funds the component of infrastructure demand from existing dwellings, and the contribution scheme will fund the component of infrastructure demand for future growth.

Who will not make a contribution under the proposed plan?

It will not apply to:

  • Lots that have no subdivision or additional development potential;
  • Landowners who choose not to subdivide or develop more than one single dwelling.
  • An existing vacant lot that only has the potential to be developed for a single dwelling.

I still have more questions about the proposed Community Infrastructure Development Contribution Plan.

The Shire can address questions in respect of the differences between the current policy, and what a proposed plan is seeking to achieve.
