Local Government Infrastructure Plan

In accordance with the Planning Act 2016, the City of Gold Coast has prepared a Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) which outlines our vision for trunk infrastructure over the next 15 years. After approval from the State Government to adopt, the LGIP has been implemented as Part 4 of the City Plan, commencing 27 June 2018.

Infrastructure charges will continue to be set by Council resolution and are contained within the Council of the City of Gold Coast Charges Resolution.

For information on the City's LGIP, go to the LGIP overview page.

Council of the City of Gold Coast Charges Resolution (Charges Resolution)

Infrastructure charges applying to development are governed by the State Government through its State Planning Regulatory Provision (adopted charges) 2012 (SPRP). This document tables the capped infrastructure charge rates for identified land uses. For developments within the city, infrastructure charges are set by Council resolution and follow the SPRP. They are then included in the Charges Resolution. The most recently adopted version of the Charges Resolution is known as 'No. 1 of 2018'. It is effective from 27 June 2018 and will be relevant for developments approved from that date forward. Further information about the Charges Resolution can be found on the Infrastructure contributions page.
