Kempsey looks to simplify infrastructure contributions

Kempsey Shire Council has undertaken a review of its developer contributions plans with a view to update the existing suite to bring them in line with current best practice.

The key purpose of the review was to make the plans easier to implement, monitor, report on and easier to review and update in the future, the Council said in a statement.

“These contributions apply to future development and are imposed as a condition of development consent or complying development in accordance with a contributions plan,” the Council said.

The Kempsey Local Infrastructure Contribution Plan applies to the Kempsey Local Government Area excluding South West Rocks.

“The key purpose of the review was to make the plans easier to implement, monitor, report on and easier to review and update in the future.”

“It will also assist developers and the community by providing a plan that is easier to understand and more consistent.

“In conjunction with developing the Kempsey Local Infrastructure Contributions Plan, Council also reviewed current Council policies and procedures to ensure alignment with the new plan. As a result, Council developed a Planning Agreement Policy and Works in Kind Policy,” Council said.

Council has placed the draft Waste Management Strategy 2022-2032 on public exhibition for a minimum 28 days.

Submissions are open until 4pm 28 February 2023.
