Consultation has concluded

What are Section 94A development contributions?

Section 94A is the Section of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 that allows Council to collect contributions from those undertaking development. The contribution under Section 94A must be a monetary contribution and must be authorised by a Section 94A Contributions Plan prepared by Council. Standard contribution rates are fixed by legislation. Blue Mountains City Council has had a Section 94A Contributions Plan adopted since 2010.

What has been amended in the plan?

At the meeting of 21 April 2015, the Council endorsed an amendment to the Draft Citywide Community Infrastructure Contributions Plan for public exhibition in accordance with the EP&A Act 1979 and the EP&A Regulation 2000. The amendment primarily updates the works schedule for the financial years 2015-16 and 2016-17 to ensure that the Plan remains valid and addresses current priorities and needs.

The plan (as amended) is on exhibition from Wednesday 29 April to Wednesday 27 May 2015 and submissions are invited during this period.

Exhibition material can be downloaded at right, or viewed at Council’s Katoomba and Springwood Offices and all Council libraries. Submissions can be made through this website, in writing or email quoting reference F07019, clearly stating matters of relevance.
