Mackay Regional Council adopted amendments to its Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution on 24 November 2017 (Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution, November 2017). The new resolution will commence from 1 February 2018 and will apply to new development applications received from this date.

Properly made applications received by close of business, Wednesday 31 January 2018, will be eligible for calculation of infrastructure charges based on the Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution, December 2014.

Also, please note that indexation of infrastructure charges will be calculated at the time of payment, for infrastructure charges that were issued based on the Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution, December 2014 or the Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution, November 2017. Indexation will apply if the infrastructure charges notice is greater than 12 months old at the time of payment. Indexation will be calculated using the method identified in the applicable adopted charges resolution, but cannot exceed the maximum charge that would be allowed by the Planning Act (s112) when applying the maximum adopted charge.
