With the end of the financial year just around the corner, be ready for increased application fees, referral fees and infrastructure charges.
Most of the Council increases are around 2% with relatively small increases on ‘typical’ development applications.
Similar percentage increases can be expected for infrastructure charges payments.
The State Agencies (SARA - State Assessment Referral Agency) have adopted a slightly more aggressive 3.5% increase in referral fees.This means the most common referral (a site within 100m of a State-controlled road) will increase from $1564 to about $1619 (to be confirmed).
