Modest increases for 18/19 – what you’ll pay from 1 July

Tuesday, June 26, 2018, by Project Urban

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).
