Community infrastructure levy

Some owners of property in the local growth areas of Epping, Doreen, Mernda, South Morang, Donnybrook and Wollert must pay a ‘community infrastructure levy’ to fund local infrastructure for the whole community.

The levy is a one-off payment that must be paid before a building permit can be issued, as specified in the Victorian Planning and Environment Act 1987 and the Building Act 1993.

Contribution rates by area

The rates shown below are the 2023-24 indexed rates.

The information should be read in conjunction with the relevant development contributions plan, infrastructure contributions plan or other plan.

You can download a hard-copy of the Development Contribution rates by area.

Fees and exemptions

For some housing estates within growth areas, you do not need to pay the community infrastructure levy as the developer has paid this on your behalf or the property is in an exempted area.

The levy fee payable also varies for different areas.

To find out whether your estate requires payment and how much, check if your housing estate is listed below or type the street address into our interactive map.

If your housing estate is not listed below or cannot be located on the interactive map, please contact Strategic Planning on 9217 2170.

All fees are affected by indexation and are subject to change.
