About Amendment C221more

Amendment C221more relates to the existing 2015 Development Contribution Plan (DCP). This city-wide plan includes an infrastructure projects list, for works being funded by the DCP.

The C221more proposal is:

  • Enabling an updated infrastructure projects list, which is shown in a new Addendum (5Mb) to the DCP's existing incorporated document in the Merri-bek Planning Scheme.
  • Ensuring the DCP’s updated infrastructure list is informed by Council’s 4-Year Budget 2022-2026 for its delivery. This budget was prepared after completing community engagement and was adopted on 23 June 2022.  

The DCP's existing contribution rates and pricing areas in the planning scheme are not affected by Amendment C221more.
