Under Consideration

Draft special infrastructure contributions (SIC) guidelines


Special infrastructure contributions (SICs) help fund key elements of state and regional infrastructure in growing areas of Greater Sydney and regional NSW. The Department is responsible for the operation and management of the SIC framework, including the preparation of plans and Ministerial determinations, the collection of SIC revenue, investment prioritisation and distribution of funds for infrastructure delivery.

The Department is seeking to improve the transparency of the application of SICs. The draft SIC guidelines provide guidance regarding the purpose and function of SICs and their application in the new approach to precinct planning

The proposed changes were on public exhibition from 15 April 2020 until 12 June 2020.

The department is currently reviewing and considering all submissions received.

Your feedback will help inform critical improvements to the infrastructure contributions system in NSW.
