City of Sydney Development Contributions Plan

The City of Sydney invites your feedback on the draft City of Sydney Development Contributions Plan 2015.

Under the NSW planning system, councils can collect contributions from developers to fund essential infrastructure, such as new childcare centres and sports fields.

This draft plan combines the existing City of Sydney Development Contributions Plan 2006 and Ultimo Pyrmont Section 94 Contributions Plan 1994, and incorporates several updates.

These include updated developer contribution rates to reflect current population projections, infrastructure demand, and land and infrastructure costs. We’ve also updated precinct boundaries, works programs and developments exempt from paying a contribution.

The draft plan is open for comment until Thursday 3 March 2016.

After the exhibition, the City will consider all submissions received and report the outcomes to Council. If Council approves the draft plan it will replace the existing City of Sydney Development Contributions Plan 2006 and Ultimo Pyrmont Section 94 Contributions Plan 1994.

Submissions marked ‘Draft City of Sydney Development Contributions Plan 2015’ can be emailed to Jonathon Carle at jcarle@cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au

Submissions can also be posted to:
