At its Ordinary Meeting on 29 October 2009, council adopted a policy for Infrastructure Contributions Rebates for Eligible Community Organisations.
This policy applies to development proposals under the Maroochy Plan 2000, Caloundra City Plan 2004 and Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014.
The policy ensures that one set of eligibility criteria can be applied consistently across the whole Sunshine Coast Council area. To maximise consistency, the policy has been based on a fixed proportion of rebates relating to specific categories of development involving community uses.
The general tenet of the policy is that community organisations operate a diverse range of facilities, programs and services for residents of the region that would otherwise need to be provided by government at all levels, at a significant cost. The granting of infrastructure contribution rebates ensures much needed funds remain with the organisations that provide benefit to the community.
Applicants must make a request for a rebate of infrastructure contributions when submitting the development application. The request must include sufficient information to demonstrate compliance with the relevant category under the policy.
