Use of Development Contributions by Local Government

Tabled: 9 December 2009

Development contributions are payments or in-kind works provided by developers towards the supply of infrastructure to support new land developments. They are a critical component of Victoria’s broader planning system, and are collected mainly by councils using Development Contributions Plans, voluntary agreements and planning and building permit processes.

The objective of the audit was to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of councils’ management of development contributions; whether they had effective arrangements for managing, monitoring and reporting on the collection and use of development contributions; and whether they effectively used development contributions to deliver planned infrastructure.

The audit examined the nature and use of development contributions levied by the following councils up to 2008–09:

  • City of Port Phillip
  • Surf Coast Shire Council
  • Wyndham City Council.
