Development contribution plans

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.
