February 4, 2019: Council has now completed its draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) and wants to hear from you.

An LGIP is a statutory planning requirement under the Planning Act 2016, which establishes a sustainable program of local, higher order infrastructure necessary to support population and employment growth, including water, wastewater, stormwater, transport, and parks and land for community facilities.

The purpose and general effect of the draft LGIP is to:

      effective and orderly manner; is sustainable (capable of being funded by
      Council); and aligns with Council's asset management and long-term
      financial planning
  • • Provide a basis for Council to levy infrastructure charges and condition
      the provision of trunk infrastructure as part of development, and
  • • Provide transparency regarding Council's intention for the provision of
      trunk infrastructure

The draft LGIP and supporting material is available to view and download on Council's website. The draft LGIP is available for inspection and purchase at Council's Customer Service Centres.

The public consultation period for the proposed LGIP commences Monday 4 February 2019 and closes Friday 15 March 2019. Any person may make a written submission about any aspect of the proposed LGIP.
