The City of Parramatta (Outside CBD) Development Contributions Plan has been in effect since 20 September 2021 and applies to all land within the City of Parramatta LGA, except the Parramatta CBD and the Sydney Olympic Park Authority area. The plan levies a development contribution on most new developments to fund the provision of local infrastructure, including:

  • Open space and recreation facilities, including parks and indoor sports courts
  • Community facilities, including libraries and community centres, and
  • Traffic and transport works, including local road upgrades, pedestrian safety infrastructure and traffic calming works.

Since the commencement of the Plan, a limited number of issues that are mostly of an administrative nature have been identified. The draft amended Plan seeks to rectify these issues.

In accordance with the public exhibition requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, Council is required to exhibit the proposed changes to a development contributions plan, and consider any feedback received during this period, before it can finalise an amendment to the Plan.

Proposed changes

What changes are being proposed?

The key changes sought in the proposed amendment are:

  • Modifications of consent: Amending the wording of the Plan so that any modifications to development applications will continue to be levied under the contributions plan that was in place at the time the original consent was determined.
  • New levy on additional residential lots: Change to include a new charge rate for additional residential lots created through subdivision of without development on the new lot.
  • Introduction of new worker occupancy rates:
    • Childcare facilities – at a rate of 42sqm per worker
    • Indoor recreation facilities – at a rate of 149sqm per worker
  • Updating references to social housing and social housing providers: Updated references to definitions in the EP&A Act and the Housing SEPP
  • Minor administrative changes: Relating to updated references to Council’s Voluntary Planning Agreement Register, changes to accepted methods of payment of contributions, our process for crediting monetary contributions to new or modified applications before considering refunds, and typographical amendments to clarify which sections of the EP&A Act apply to development contributions through complying development.

To find out more about the changes proposed, please refer to the Council report and the draft Housekeeping Amendment in the exhibition material section.
