When people develop land for any use, upgraded infrastructure is often required.
Development contributions are payments or works-in-kind towards the provision of infrastructure made by a developer. The Planning and Environment Act 1987 allows for development contributions to be provided through the:
- planning scheme amendment process
- planning permit process, or
- building permit process.
Development contributions are one of a number of options available to local and State government for funding infrastructure.
There are two parts to the Development Contribution Levy:
- The Development Infrastructure Levy (DIL) which applies to leviable developments and contributes to funding development infrastructure such as roads and open space. The DIL is a financial contribution made by developers before developing their land for urban purposes.
- The Community Infrastructure Levy applies to funding community infrastructure, such as pavilions in growth area developments. See the Community Infrastructure Levy page for more information.
Where a Development Contribution Plan (DCP) Schedule in the Hume Planning Scheme applies to land, the DIL must be paid before a Statement of Compliance is issued.
