Developer Contributions Plans

Development contributions are a levy charged to a developer when a development will result in an increased demand for public infrastructure.

Councils require approved contribution plans to be able to levy these charges as a condition of a consent. Council has a number of contribution plans some of which are funding infrastructure to service the whole of the local government area and some of which service site specific areas. A full list of these plans is available below. 

The infrastructure included in a plan must be required as a result of new development. Example of the projects funded by contributions are new and upgraded roads and intersections, shared / cycle ways, local parks, recreational reserves, improved parking and district level sporting facilities.



Coffs Harbour City Council has adopted incentives to help stimulate development. Certain developments may qualify for concessions or exemptions relating to Developer Contribution Charges. Please refer to Council’s Business & Development Incentives for more information.
