Byford Traditional Infrastructure Development Contribution Plan

Contribution arrangements for sharing the costs of Traditional Infrastructure are currently in place across the Byford Urban Area

Developers (through the DCP scheme) will fund the component of infrastructure demand which is driven as a result of growth.

Details of the infrastructure inclusions, timelines and associated costs (and contribution amounts) of the DCP are in the latest DCP report at the link below. (Previous DCP Report Revisions can be viewed using the link at the bottom of this page).

Byford Traditional Infrastructure Development Contribution Plan Report No. 7 (DCP7)

This DCP applies to both Residential and Non-Residential Development.  It is noted that a Community Infrastructure Development Contribution Plan is also operative within each of the Byford and Mundijong-Whitby Urban areas. Contributions may therefore be required for this Traditional DCP and/or the Community Infrastructure DCP. Details of the Community Infrastructure DCP can be found here.

The DCP has been developed under the framework of the State Government’s State Planning Policy 3.6 (SPP3.6), which guides the process of how development contributions for infrastructure are managed. SPP 3.6 can be viewed here.

SPP 3.6 (2021) requires an Annual Status Report to be prepared by the local government, providing an overview of progress of the delivery of infrastructure specified in the DCP.  This is to be published on the local government’s website within 6 months of Financial Year End. As a new requirement within the revised SPP 3.6 (2021) this report will be available within 6 months of Financial Year End 2022/2023 onwards.

The Annual Report confirms that the DCP Reserve Account has been independently audited for the Annual Report financial year.  Details of the Annual Audits undertaken for all the Shire’s active DCPs can be found here.
