The Upper Hunter Shire Council has prepared a draft Section 94 Contributions Plan. The Plan levies contributions based on demand for facilities generated by new residential development on land zoned R1 General Residential, R5 Large Lot Residential, B2 Local Centre and B4 Mixed Use in the townships of Scone and Aberdeen and surrounds.
In addition to applying to new residential development, the Plan seeks contributions from:
• Development throughout the Local Government Area which generate frequent heavy haulage vehicle movements towards the additional costs of road maintenance, and
• All development in the B2 and B4 zones in Scone township where insufficient car parking is provided on site to meet the demand arising from new development.
The draft Plan can be viewed at Council offices at 135 Liverpool Street, Scone, 42 Vennacher Street, Merriwa and 47 Mayne Street, Murrurundi during normal business hours. The draft Plan can be downloaded below.
Exhibition period: from 15 March 2017 to 12 April 2017
Written submissions are invited from members of the public, and should be addressed to the General Manager. Submissions should be received by close of business Thursday 13 April 2017.
