There are two levies that are applied for development contributions plans under the Planning and Environment Act 1987. The development infrastructure levy is a contribution towards 'civil' infrastructure and the community infrastructure levy is a contribution towards community facilities.
The development infrastructure levy for residential developments is payable on a net developable area basis by the development proponent on subdivision of land in the Ballarat West PSP. For commercial developments the levy is payable prior to works commencing.
The community infrastructure levy is payable by new homeowners in the Ballarat West PSP prior to the issue of a building permit.
