Local Government Infrastructure Plan
Council of City of Gold Coast's (Council) Priority Infrastructure Plan (PIP) is a component of Council's City Plan and commenced in January 2007. Under changes to the Sustainable Planning Act (2009), the existing PIP became known as the Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) from 4 July 2014. Council will continue to use this transitional version of the LGIP until it completes the new LGIP. Work has commenced on the preparation of the new LGIP which will have similar elements and methodology to the PIP, although infrastructure charges will continue to be set by Council resolution and are contained within the Council of the City of Gold Coast Charges Resolution.
The LGIP forecasts the scale, type, timing and location of growth in the city, in order to plan the provision of trunk infrastructure in a timely manner. The LGIP should be read in conjunction with the Water Supply and Sewerage Infrastructure Plan 2014 and the Council of the City of Gold Coast Charges Resolution.
Water Supply and Sewerage Infrastructure Plan 2014
On 19 December 2014, the water and wastewater networks of the LGIP were superseded by the Water Supply and Sewerage Infrastructure Plan 2014. This plan forms part of the City of Gold Coast's Water and Sewerage Network Services Plan. This is the City's plan that demonstrates satisfactory provision of water supply and sewerage services under the South East Queensland Water (Distribution and Retail Restructuring) Act 2009. Until the new LGIP takes effect, planning for the water and sewerage networks will continue to form part of the Water and Sewerage Network Services Plan.
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. Further information about the Charges Resolution can be found on the Infrastructure contributions web page.
