The Community Infrastructure Levy is a contribution that goes towards the construction of community facilities such as kindergartens, libraries, community hubs, maternal and child health rooms and, sport pavilions.
This levy is a one-off payment, currently $1,210. It must be paid prior to the issue of a building permit for construction of a new dwelling, as specified in the Victorian Planning and Environment Act 1987 and mandated under Section 24(5) of the Building Act 1993.
From 1 July 2020 and each subsequent financial year, the community infrastructure levy will be adjusted to the new maximum levy amount published on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s website on or before 1 July of each financial year. The amount is adjusted in accordance with section 46LA of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.
