Part 4 Local Government Infrastructure Plan

The Local Government Infrastructure Plan (‘the  LGIP’) is adopted to:

  • integrate infrastructure planning with the land use planning identified in Council’s planning scheme;
  • provide transparency regarding Council’s intentions for the provision of trunk infrastructure for the Region;
  • enable Council to estimate the cost of infrastructure provision to assist its long-term financial planning;
  • ensure that trunk infrastructure is planned and provided in an efficient and orderly manner; and
  • provide a basis for the imposition of conditions about infrastructure on development approvals upon development.

The LGIP identifies trunk infrastructure plans for the following five networks that provide essential services for development:

  • Water supply;
  • Wastewater;
  • Stormwater;
  • Transport;
  • Public parks and land for community facilities.
