Development Contributions Plan

A Development contributions plan (DCP) is a mechanism used to levy new development. It helps to fund basic and essential infrastructure that is required to service a new community.

Development Infrastructure Levy

The Development Infrastructure Levy (DIL) is the primary levy used to fund a large majority of projects that have been identified in the Development contributions Plan.

Typically, this will include:

  • roads and intersections
  • public land
  • community facilities

DIL is indexed annually in accordance with the methods outlined in the Development Contributions Plan.

Community Infrastructure Levy

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a one-off payment used to fund new community infrastructures such as sporting pavilions.

The CIL is capped at $1,225 per dwelling (2021/2022 financial year) and is indexed annually by the state government.
