The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has developed a digital service that allows applicants to request and track Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC) assessments online via the NSW Planning Portal.
The online service allows faster assessment times and will improve the way the Department communicates with applicants and councils during the SIC assessment process.
Users will have to register for a NSW Planning Portal account to begin the SIC assessment process. Once registered, applicants can access their dashboard to submit, track and add additional information to their SIC assessment request.
How to apply online
- Register for a NSW Planning Portal account to start your application.

What documentation will I need?
Users will need to provide a copy of their development consent and an approved plan of subdivision/development for the land. Further information may be required and will be requested via the NSW Planning Portal.
Am I in a SIC area?
You can access the ePlanning Spatial Viewer to see if your development is within a SIC area. The new Spatial Viewer will provide a variety of base maps to improve your understanding of which planning controls apply to your site, which may be overlain with street maps and satellite maps.
