Developer Contributions Plans

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

The City of Coffs Harbour requires approved contribution plans to be able to levy these charges as a condition of a consent. The City have 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. Examples 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. Each individual plan details the infrastructure that will funded by contributions for the area outlined in the plan.
