Infrastructure contributions

The Department of Planning and Environment exhibited a package of reforms to implement recommendations made by the Productivity Commission, following its review into infrastructure contributions.

In September 2022, the decision was made not to proceed with the proposed changes. The Department will continue to look at ways to enhance and optimise how the infrastructure contributions system operates.
