Contribution Plans

Division 6 of Part 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 gives Council the power to levy contributions from developers for public infrastructure required as a consequence of their development.

Contributions may be in the form of cash payments, transfer or dedication of land to Council or the provision of a material of public benefit (generally known as works in kind). For Council to levy contributions there must be a clear nexus between the proposed development and the need for the public infrastructure for which the levy is being required.

The requirements for payment of contributions are based on:

  • Liverpool Contributions Plan 2007 - Liverpool City Centre
  • Liverpool Contributions Plan 2008 - Edmondson Park
  • Liverpool Contributions Plan 2009 (December 2010),
  • Liverpool Contributions Plan 2014 - Austral and Leppington North (October 2014)
  • Liverpool Contributions Plan 2015 - East Leppington (June 2015)

The contribution rates are updated in accordance with the formula in the contributions plans. The current index and contribution rates are available for download.
