An ICP is a simplified system for funding basic and essential local infrastructure required by a new community.
The ICP may be made of one or two parts, a standard levy and/ or a supplementary levy. The standard levy is a pre-set rate that may be used to fund transport, community and recreation infrastructure and public land provision. In particular circumstances a supplementary levy may also apply.
Through the preparation of Precinct Structure Plans, the VPA together with Councils has sought to understand and plan for the needs of the future community by anticipating the requirements of roads, intersections, bridges, community buildings and sports and recreation facilities.
This local infrastructure is funded through an Infrastructure Contributions Plan (ICP).
Within the south east growth area the standard levy for is $339,000 per net developable hectare for residential areas and $158,500 per net developable hectare for employment areas.
Within the north west growth area the standard levy for is $328,500 per net developable hectare for residential areas and $155,000 per net developable hectare for employment areas.
