Local Government Infrastructure Plans

The Property Council has provided a submission on the Local Government and other Legislation Amendment Bill (NO.2) 2015.

The submission outlines our concerns with the proposed extension of time provisions that could allow local governments a further 2 years to prepare and adopt their Local Government Infrastructure Plans.

Secondly, the Property Council is providing in principle support to the proposed amendment that allows an applicant receiving an Infrastructure Charges Notice, to advise the local government that they are prepared to receive information about an offset or refund at a later time.

The Bill and explanatory notes can be found here, the Property Council’s submission can be found below.
