What is the Community Infrastructure Levy and will I have to pay it?

The City of Casey imposes a one off Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which is associated to an individual property and is required to be paid prior to issuance of a building permit for construction of a dwelling. CILs are applicable in a number of areas within the City of Casey and is determined by the Planning and Environment Act in cases where there is a Development Contribution Plan Overlay (DCPO) applying to the land.

The purpose of the levy is to fund much needed start up community facilities in the areas in which the levy applies.  The current cost of the CIL is $1,150 per lot and is payable by the land owner prior to issuance of a building permit.

 

Why doesn’t Hartleigh pay the CIL?

Hartleigh will not cover the cost of the Community Infrastructure Levy. While other estates may say they are waiving this cost, it’s more likely this charge is being included to the cost of their development which is then passed on to customers through higher land prices.

While Hartleigh is not adding the cost of this levy to the development of the estate, Hartleigh is also not passing this cost onto customers via higher land prices.  For every lot Hartleigh sells, Hartleigh pays $16,900  per lot to Government agencies for future infrastructure such as arterial roads, schools and district open space. We value the Hartleigh community and are doing our part to make sure our wonderful customers have access to community facilities, infrastructure and amenities.
