Central Sydney contributions
Central Sydney contributions plan
Building projects in the city centre that are expected to exceed $200,000 in development costs must make cash contributions to the City amounting to 1% of the expected total development costs before a construction certificate or complying development certificate can be released.
Information applicants need to provide
For developments expected to cost between $150,000 and $3 million a City Cost Summary Report needs to be completed and submitted, which can be downloaded below.
When the expected cost will exceed $3 million a City Registered Quantity Surveyor's Detailed Cost Report must be completed and submitted, which can be downloaded below.
A copy of the construction certificate or CDC plans must be submitted along with the Cost Summary Report.
The reports submitted must then be verified by the City in writing.
Development cost inclusions and exclusions
Items to include or exclude in the development cost are described in section 2.3(a) on pages 6 and 7 of the plan, which can be downloaded below.
