The Parramatta City Centre Local Infrastructure Contributions Plan 2022 (the Plan) originally came into effect on 14 October 2022, at the same time as the commencement of Amendment 56 to Parramatta Local Environmental Plan 2011, which introduced increased height and densities to the Parramatta CBD.

The Plan allows Council to collect money via development application or complying development certificate conditions of consent, with the funds put toward items specified in the Works Schedule of the Plan.

Amendment 1 to the Plan came into effect on 30 June 2023, to reflect an amendment to the Parramatta CBD planning controls within the block bound by Phillip Street, Smith Street, the Parramatta River and Charles Street. Amendment No.1 matched the contributions for that block to other nominated areas of the CBD.
