Developer Contributions

What is a developer contribution?

Developer contributions are payments or works-in-kind towards the delivery of infrastructure needs generated by new developments and subdivisions which are used to fund community infrastructure such as roads, drainage, community and recreation centres, sporting facilities, libraries, and other facilities.   

What areas are covered by developer contributions?

The City has created a Development Contribution Plan for community infrastructure in Cockburn, known as Developer Contribution Plan 13. This applies to all land within the City which is to be subdivided and/or developed for residential, rural residential or resource zone purposes and is in addition to any other Developer Contribution Plan requirements applying to an area.

It does not apply to lots that have no subdivision or development potential. Different suburbs have different rates. Please view the table below for a list of suburbs and current rates for Developer Contribution Plan 13.
