Inquiry status:Past
Date commenced:15 Oct 2003
Deadline for submissions:16 Feb 2004
Date Ended:21 Oct 2004
Committee:Public Accounts Committee (2001 - 2005)
House:Legislative Assembly
Important Information:
Terms of Reference:1. To inquire into the current formulae applied to developer contributions, State and local government taxes, levies and other contributions to infrastructure and service costs to both public and private sectors for new frontal (green field) development;

2. It is generally accepted that as densities increase, the average infrastructure costs per dwelling decrease. In terms of new frontal development, at what density is the greatest financial efficiency in infrastructure costs obtained, while recognising that most frontal development will be at a relatively low density;

3. What factors relating to new frontal developments contribute to disproportionately high increases in infrastructure, and may otherwise be avoided;

4. To inquire into the current formulae applied to developer contributions, State and local government levies and any other contributions to infrastructure costs for in-fill development;

5. To compare relative contributions in Western Australia to those in other jurisdictions in Australia;

6. To provide a comparative analysis between Terms of Reference 1 and 4 and to formulate recommendations to address inequities and strengthen efficiency in relation to private and public infrastructure contributions; and

7. To determine any pattens emerging where densities for in-fill development can be calculated having regard to capacities of existing infrastructure and in the effort to maximise cost efficiencies in infrastructure and service providers.
