New Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution 2015


The new Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution 2015 (AICR 2015) aligns Council’s charging regime with the new use definitions in the new Planning Scheme. In addition, Council has also made some changes to the amounts charges for particular developments.  In some circumstances, the applied charge has reduced, while in other circumstances the charge has increased.  The main reduction in charges applies to developments approximately 15km from the Bundaberg CBD, rural residential lots and hinterland areas.  However, most of the charges on commercial, industrial and other employment generating activities have increased. Below is a summary of charges for the creation of a new lot—

  • Fully serviced $25,200
  • Bundaberg Partially Serviced (no wastewater) $22,680
  • Bundaberg Partially Serviced (no wastewater and no water supply) $20,160
  • Hinterland Partially Serviced (no wastewater) $15,000
  • Hinterland Partially Serviced (no wastewater and no water supply) $10,000

The resolution also introduces a charge for building work applications.  This is presently isolated to duplex developments where these charges would have been previously picked up through a Material Change of Use application.  Council will have up to 20 business days to issue an Adopted Infrastructure Charges Notice once the building work approval for the duplex has been issued.
