Sections 7.11 and 7.12 Contributions
Section 7.11 and 7.12 development contributions plans (under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act) are utilised to service the needs of expected future population and employment growth in the area. Sections 7.11 and 7.12 were formerly known as sections 94 and 94A, respectively, prior to changes to the Act.
These plans outline the contributions to be made from particular developments and identify the public services and amenities that the funds are directed to. The contributions to be paid, are detailed within conditions of development consents or conditions within complying development certificates.
In 2016, the new Inner West Council inherited seven (7) development contributions plans from former Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville. In the future, these plans will be replaced by a single Inner West section 7.11 & section 7.12 development contributions plan.
Former Ashfield Council area
Former Leichhardt Council area
A draft section 7.12 development contributions plan has been prepared
for the former Leichhardt Area of the Inner West.
The draft plan consists of:
of the levy to be charged
to particular development under the plan
land and development affected
schedule of public amenities and services that are to
be funded under the plan and maps of their locations
the levy is calculated and indexed
Leichhardt area is the only part of the Inner West that currently does not have
a section 7.12 plan in place. This is a
harmonisation project that ensures that section 7.12 contribution levies are
applied equitably throughout the Inner West, until a single new contributions
plan is in place, for the whole area.
The draft plan is currently on public
exhibition until Sunday 31 May 2020.
