What are development contributions plans?
As part of the development process, Council requires that developer contributions be paid to the Council to help deliver various types of public amenity and services required as a consequence of various forms of development. Developer contributions are essential in providing the facilities and services that support and maintain the high quality of life that residents of Campbelltown enjoy.
How are development contributions plans calculated?
Contributions for development are based on the location of a development as to whether Section 94 or Section 94A applies. Section 94A is calculated on the cost of development work; Section 94 is calculated on lots/dwellings and for some commercial developments, the number of car parking spaces.
How will development contributions be spent?
Each contributions plan identifies public services and amenities that development contributions will be spent on to meet the demands generated by development. Examples include roads, open space, recreation facilities, car parking, and community facilities.
When is payment of development contributions required?
Payment of development contributions is generally required prior to the release of the Construction Certificate for the development however, timing of payment will be stated on your consent.
