State planning regulatory provision (adopted charges) 2012

A local government can levy infrastructure charges to cover some of the costs of providing trunk infrastructure for development. The State Planning Regulatory Provision (adopted charges) 2012 (PDF icon 116 KB) (SPRP) imposes a maximum amount that a local government can levy on development, for each adopted charge category.

In accordance with the provisions of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 sections 629(2) and 629(3), the Minister has decided to increase the amount of the maximum charges in the SPRP in 2016. The Adopted Infrastructure Charges Schedule 2016 (PDF icon 392 KB) includes the maximum charges that will now apply. Except for the amount of the charges, the State Planning Regulatory Provision (adopted charges) 2012 continues to apply unchanged.

Infrastructure charges resolutions

Local governments may, by resolution, adopt charges for providing trunk infrastructure for development. They can also levy different infrastructure charge amounts for local government areas and provide for the indexation of a levied charge. To do this, a local government needs to pass an adopted charges resolution as set out in Section 631 of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009. An infrastructure charge can be set equal to or below the maximum adopted charge in the State planning regulatory provision (adopted charges) 2016.

For more information about your council area's adopted infrastructure charge resolution, contact your local government office.

A template has been developed to support local governments in preparing their adopted infrastructure charges resolution.

PPI Index

A spread sheet has been developed to assist local governments and applicants in calculating the automatic increases in levied charges from when they are levied to when they are paid. The producer price index for construction 6427.0 index number 3101 - Road and Bridge construction index for Queensland has been used to develop the template.
