Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a financial contribution to new community infrastructure in growth area developments.

Each growth area precinct has different infrastructure needs. The infrastructure that the Community Infrastructure Levy payments are allocated towards are specified in the Development Contributions Plan (DCP) for that growth area, or precinct. This DCP is an incorporated document in the Hume Planning Scheme.

A Community Infrastructure Levy is a fee set by the State Government to fund the cost of providing new community land and facilities in newly developing areas.  The levy generally funds infrastructure needed by a community such as sporting pavilions or community centres. Council is responsible for delivering new facilities funded by the levy.

In areas where a Community Infrastructure Levy is payable, the levy must be paid before a building permit is issued for a new dwelling.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is calculated on a per dwelling basis and is capped at $1,150.

To allow for inflation the Community Infrastructure Levy is indexed annually on 1 January.

The amount payable varies between housing estates, and a summary is provided below:

The Community Infrastructure Levy is payable in new growth areas.  In some cases, the levy is paid by the land developer before new house lots are created for sale.  In other cases, new landowners will need to pay the levy before they can construct a house on a new property.

A current list of housing estates which require landowners to pay the Community Infrastructure Levy before building a new house is provided below: 

  • Trillium (Villawood)
  • Merrifield (MAB)
  • Annadale (Moremac)
  • The Woods (Evolve)
  • Kallo (National Pacific)
  • Cloverton (Stockland)
  • Waratah (Villawood)
  • Umbra (Open Bonds Lane/Open Corp/Somerton Road)
  • Maples (PASK)
  • Trijena 
  • Botanical (Satterley)
  • Somerfield Greenvale

As the Community Infrastructure Levy is payable by dwelling, where a lot is further subdivided (into townhouses for example), additional fees may be due for the extra dwellings created.

The Community Infrastructure Levy must be paid before a building permit for the construction of a new house can be issued.

The levy is mandated by Section 24(5) of the Building Act 1993.

The Community Infrastructure Levy must be paid to Council before a Building Surveyor can issue a building permit.

Should a building permit be issued before the Community Infrastructure Levy is paid, Council:

  1. will remind the Building Surveyor of their responsibilities under section 24(5) of the Building Act 1993.
  2. may take steps to secure payment through Council’s established debt collection procedures.
