Section 7.12 flat rate levy contributions are one of several ways local councils can fund infrastructure. The Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 sets 1% as the standard highest maximum percentage which councils can levy under a s7.12 development contributions plan. It also identifies specific areas which are subject to higher maximum percentage levies.
The Department is committed to ensuring the process of assessing requests for a higher maximum percentage levy is efficient and transparent. We have identified a set of potential criteria that can be used in assessing requests for a higher maximum percentage
