LG Infrastructure Plan

Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP)

Council has adopted the South Burnett Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP). The LGIP provides information pertaining to likely infrastructure required to service future development within a Priority Infrastructure Area, and will help Council plan for the delivery of infrastructure to our region.

Development infrastructure is defined in the Planning Act 2016 and is limited to land and/or works for the following five networks that provide essential services for development:

  • water supply
  • sewerage
  • stormwater
  • transport
  • public parks and land for community facilities.

Council’s LGIP will form the basis to identify trunk infrastructure, impose conditions about infrastructure during development applications and to apply infrastructure charges. Infrastructure charges will ensure new developments contribute toward essential trunk infrastructure.

Infrastructure Charges will be included on an Infrastructure Charges Notice for a development if a development approval is received. The types of development that may trigger Infrastructure Charges include Material Change of Use (MCU), reconfiguring a Lot (RoL) and certain Building Work. Infrastructure Charges must be paid prior to commencement of the use (in the case for MCU) or prior to Council endorsing a survey plan for RoL.

Infrastructure Charges Register

Pursuant to the Planning Regulation 2017, Council must keep and maintain a register of all Infrastructure charges levied on development by Council. The register includes all charges levied from 1 July 2019. The register will be formally updated on a monthly basis. A copy of the register is available here.
