Client: NSW Department of Planning and Environment
This project involved the development of a Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC) model on behalf of the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to use in determining the value of SIC levies applicable to a number of major Growth Areas across metropolitan Sydney. A comprehensive user guide was also prepared to guide the Department in its future use of the model. The model architecture included inputs on defining each growth area and applicable infrastructure networks, development profiles and infrastructure costs and timing, as well as funding rules. The model is used by the Department to deliver and finance facilitating infrastructure to support growth in the Sydney metropolitan area.
