WHAT IS A DEVELOPMENT COST CHARGE?
DCCs are fees collected from developers on a user pay basis to help fund the cost of growth-related infrastructure and parks. DCCs are regulated through the Local Government Act. The rates charged reflect the impact growth has on community parks; the greater the impact, the larger the charge. This helps ensure developers pay their fair share of the costs required to develop new infrastructure.
