Discussion paper: Hunter Special Infrastructure Contribution Plan

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment is proposing a new Hunter Special Infrastructure Contribution Plan to help deliver the Hunter Regional Plan 2036. It will replace the draft 2011 Lower Hunter Special Infrastructure Contribution Plan.

The proposed Hunter Special Infrastructure Contribution Plan aims to define a fair and appropriate financial contribution that new development should make towards the cost of infrastructure..

We are seeking your feedback on the cost-sharing approach, the scope of infrastructure that could be included, and the implementation of the Special Infrastructure Contribution Plan. Submissions can be made until 16 December, 2016.

We anticipate that a draft Hunter Special Infrastructure Contribution Plan will be released for public consultation in early 2017.
