Hornsby Council Development Contributions Plan

  • Sector: Local Government
  • Project: Section 94 and Section 94A Development Contributions Plan
  • Client: Hornsby Council
  • DFP Services: Demographic Analysis, Population Forecasts, Infrastructure Contributions

DFP was commissioned to undertake a review of Council’s existing Section 94 Contributions Plan and to advise on how the plan could be amended or replaced to provide a more robust contributions plan that appropriately catered for the demands of anticipated future development.

Following the review DFP prepared a new Section 94 Plan and a Section 94A Plan taking into consideration Council’s recently adopted housing strategy and the impending development contributions legislation. DFP prepared population forecasts to underpin the plans and assisted Council to develop a costed works program. The Section 94 and Section 94A Plans were adopted by Council and came into force in September 2013.
