Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolutions
On 24 June 2015, Maranoa Regional Council adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolutions in accordance with amendments to the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 that came into effect on 14 June 2014. These resolutions replace Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution – No. 2.0 (AICR) and take effect from 1 July 2015.
In addition, Council adopted Infrastructure Charges Policy Resolutions for the use of Median Land Sale Prices Benchmarks in Setting Infrastructure Charges and Impact Cost Recovery for Local Road Charges in the Maranoa Regional Council area. These resolutions take effect from 1 July 2015.
Maranoa Regional Council levies infrastructure charges (AICs) as part of the development application process which includes development assessment. This ensures that new development pays a share of the cost of providing infrastructure to meet additional demand on trunk infrastructure networks.
Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolutions have been adopted for each of the five current planning schemes in effect throughout the Maranoa (Bendemere, Booringa, Bungil, Roma and Warroo).
The relevant Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolutions provide details on the level of charges for each development type (including residential, commercial, industrial and subdivisions) and the provisions for credits, offsets, refunds and the conversion of non-trunk to trunk infrastructure.
