Ballarat West Development Contributions Plan

 

The Ballarat West Development Contributions Plan (DCP) was approved by the Minister for Planning under Amendment C167 Development Contributions Plan on 30 October 2014, this accompanies the Planning Scheme Amendment C158 Ballarat West Precinct Structure Plan approved Thursday 1 November 2012.

The Ballarat West DCP was prepared as part of the overall planning for the Ballarat West Growth Area.  The plan followed the preparation of the Precinct Structure Plan which sets out the urban structure for this 1,000 hectare growth area, and was informed by detailed costings of all anticipated infrastructure across the growth area.

The development contributions are required to ensure that new communities will have equitable access to public services and amenity as well as appropriate public infrastructure. Without development contributions, new communities may never have appropriate public infrastructure and services.

Payment of Development Contribution Levies

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. The current capped amount is $900 per new dwelling.
