At its Ordinary Meeting on 22 November 2006, council adopted amendments to the following planning scheme policies in accordance with the requirements of Schedule 3 of the Integrated Planning Act (IPA).

The amendments to the policies involve changes to the unit rates (applicable to each network), by updating the construction and land costs associated with the provision of the trunk infrastructure to the revised benchmark period. In addition, a new index has been introduced to better reflect annually the actual costs in the provision of trunk infrastructure. This new index, the Non-Building Construction Index (Queensland) will replace the Consumer Price Index and update the costs to a March 2006 benchmark.

In addition to unit rate increases and the selection of a more appropriate annual index, additional projects have been included in the Roads Infrastructure DC Policy and the sewerage component of the Water Supply and Sewerage Infrastructure DC Policy.

Amendments are also proposed to the administration provisions of the policies to clarify operational issues.

The amendments came into effect on the 1 December 2006.

Online copies of the amendments can be downloaded below.
