Land use planning


Infrastructure contributions

The NSW Government is delivering an unprecedented investment in infrastructure to keep our communities connected and our economy moving.

We are reforming the infrastructure contributions system to create a better system that is fairer and benefits everyone. Our changes deliver the infrastructure we need to support new homes with transparency and consistency the community and industry need.

Land use planning process

We are proposing two key changes to the way land use contributions are made:

  • Contribution Plans will be prepared upfront (when needed) and exhibited at the same time as the rezoning proposal; and
  •  Direction will be given to think about how opportunities for dual use and shared use of open space.

This submission page is for proposed changes to land use planning process. On this page you can view the exhibition documents on land use.
