Community Infrastructure Levy in Latrobe

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. CIL is only applicable if the building permit is for a new residential building i.e. a dwelling, retirement village, etc.

This means it is usually the property owner, not the developer of a residential estate, who will pay the CIL. Sometimes developers may pay the CIL at the time of subdivision, to confirm if CIL has been paid for your property, please contact Latrobe City Council.
