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. If the developer has paid the CIL, a Section 173 Agreement will be registered on the property title confirming this.
