    Preparation of Local Structure Plan

    ü

    The contribution rate is to be calculated as a per hectare rate on the net contribution area for Precinct 3. The combined cost of common infrastructure works is to be divided across the net contribution area. The following formula applies:

    $CR = $CIW / NCA

    Where:

    $CR is the contribution rate per hectare;

    $CIW is the total cost of all common infrastructure works; and

    NCA is the net contribution area.

    Developer contribution payments for individual properties are to be calculated by multiplying the contribution rate with the net contribution area of the individual property (developable area). The following formula applies:

    $C = $CR X DA

    Where:

    $C is the contribution payment; and

    DA is the developable area (contribution area of individual property)

    A review of the cost of common infrastructure is to be undertaken annually at which time the contribution rate will be revised. Revised costs are to be based on a combination of CPI and other various civil and construction work indexes to allow for cost escalation.

    The fair market value of the land component of common infrastructure works is to be determined by a licenced valuer, and the methodology detailed in the DCP Report.

    Period of operation

    Ten years from the date of gazettal of Amendment No. 110 to the City of Gosnells Local Planning Scheme.

    Priority and timing

    As set out in the Development Contribution Plan Report or in accordance with any relevant Council resolution.

    Review process

    Council will review the Development Contribution Plan Report annually and will adjust the cost estimate of infrastructure items and land valuations as required.

    Annual Status Report

    The City shall publish an Annual Status Report for DCP 5 in accordance with the requirements of State Planning Policy 3.6 Infrastructure Contributions (as amended).

    For the purposes of this Notice, flammable matter includes, but is not limited to, vegetation (except for living trees, shrubs, plants and lawns under cultivation), prunings, cardboard, wood, paper, general rubbish and any other combustible material.

    1. For all land zoned ‘General Rural’, ‘Special Rural’, ‘Parks and Recreation’ or ‘Local Open Space’

    Mineral earth firebreaks must be continuous (no dead ends) and maintained to a minimum standard of 3m wide by 4m high (vertical clearance) to provide unimpeded access for emergency vehicles. Driveways must also be maintained to these standards.

    Firebreaks are intended to provide safe access on your property for emergency vehicles and to ensure fire does not travel under the vehicles or underfoot.

    Note: The firebreaks and requirements set out above must be maintained up to and including 30 April in the following year.

    2. For all other land

    At all times throughout the year, all owners or occupiers of land zoned other than ‘General Rural’, ‘Special Rural’, ‘Parks and Recreation’ or ‘Local Open Space’ under the Scheme are required to clear and maintain the land free of all flammable matter to a height no greater than 10cm.

    Permission needed to vary requirements

    If, due to constraints on your land, you are unable to comply with the requirements set out in this Notice, you may apply in writing to the City no later than 1 November each year for permission to provide firebreaks in alternative locations or take alternative measures.

    Unless and until permission in writing is granted by the City, you shall comply with the requirements of this Notice.

    All land owners

    Further to the above minimum requirements, the landowner may receive a separate written notice, sent to the address shown on the City of Gosnells rates record, requiring additional works which may be considered necessary by an Authorised Officer of the City.

    Penalty for non-compliance

In addition, where the owner or occupier of the land fails to comply with a Notice given pursuant to Section 33(1), the City may enter the land to carry out the work required to comply with the Notice and also recover any costs and expenses incurred in carrying out that work from the owner or occupier of the land.
