Community Infrastructure Levies (CIL) are financial contributions made by landowners towards the development of community facilities, such as sporting facilities, maternal child health centres, multi-purpose buildings etc.
These are community facilities that have been identified as required for a specific area, during the preparation of the development plan or precinct structure plan
The levy is a one-off payment that must be paid before a building permit can be issued, as specified in the Planning and Environment Act 1987 and the Building Act 1993.

Who is responsible for payment of the Community Infrastructure Levy?
Sometimes the property owner is responsible for paying the CIL at building permit stage and other times the developer of an estate may have already paid the CIL for each allotment, as part of an agreement with Latrobe City Council.
Check the title, which should include reference to a Section 173 Agreement, to confirm if the CIL has been paid.
Traralgon North Precinct
No levy is payable by the property owner. The CIL will be paid by the developer and will be referenced on title via a Section 173 Agreement.
Lake Narracan Precinct
As this development is approved for the Lake Narracan Precinct Structure Plan area, this page will be updated to indicate whether the CIL has been paid by the developer or remains payable by the purchaser of the lot.
Please note the CIL for Lake Narracan is updated annually, with indexing currently underway to update these figures. The amount to be paid is required to be indexed with this information not available until mid-July.
