New roads, upgrades and Special Charge Schemes
When there is a request or need for the construction or upgrade of road, footpath or drainage infrastructure that will benefit a defined group of properties (e.g. a particular street), the usual practice is for Council to partially fund the works and seek landowner co-contributions through a 'Special Charge Scheme.'
The process, amount of contribution and legislation for establishing these schemes is explained in Council's Special Charge Scheme for Infrastructure Works policy (DOCX, 35KB).
