City Wide Development Contributions Plan

The City of Darebin had a municipal-wide Development Contributions Plan (DCP) in place between 2004 and 2014 to fund part of the capital cost of scheduled infrastructure. The DCP was one of the first municipal wide DCP’s implemented in Victoria. SGS was commissioned by the City of Darebin to undertake an audit of this DCP and, as part of the audit, ascertained the quantum of ‘unspent funds’ from the DCP to comply with Section 46Q of the Planning and Environment Act and advised Council on the management of excess funds. The project also involved the development of a contributions framework for a revised municipal-wide DCP.nicpal-wide DCP.
