CONSULTING THE COMMUNITY

Exhibition of Draft Hawkesbury Section 94 Contributions Plan 2015

Hawkesbury City Council is exhibiting the draft Hawkesbury Section 94 Contributions Plan 2015 (S94 plan).

Section 94 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act) authorises a Consent Authority to grant consent to a proposed development subject to a condition requiring a contribution for:

  • the provision, extension or augmentation of Local Infrastructure in the area
  • the recoupment of the cost of existing Local Infrastructure in the area

Local Infrastructure means public amenities and public services that are traditionally the responsibility of local government, excluding water supply or sewerage services.

The draft S94 plan sets out the following:

  • the anticipated demands for Local Infrastructure arising from expected development and the relationship or nexus between that development and the Local Infrastructure that is required to meet those demands
  • the formulas used to determine the section 94 contributions
  • the section 94 contribution rates for the particular types of development levied under the plan
  • location maps of the Local Infrastructure items supported by a works schedule setting out an estimate of their cost and staging
  • the administrative and accounting arrangements applying to contributions that are required by the plan

If made the draft S94 plan would repeal Council’s current Section 94 Contributions Plan 2008.

The draft S94 plan and other supporting documentation are on public exhibition 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday at the Council offices, 366 George Street, Windsor for the period Friday 10 April 2015 to Monday 11 May 2015 and can also be viewed on Council’s website at http://www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au/development/development-information/planning-policies.

Written submissions concerning the provisions in the draft S94 plan may be made to Council throughout the abovementioned exhibition period. Submissions should be referenced “Draft Section 94 Contributions Plan 2015” and can be posted to Hawkesbury City Council, PO Box 146, WINDSOR NSW 2756, faxed to (02) 4587 7740, or emailed tocouncil@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au throughout the exhibition period.
