The Local Infrastructure Growth Scheme (LIGS) supports councils in the delivery of essential local infrastructure in high growth areas. The scheme funds the gap between the maximum contribution councils can collect from developers and the reasonable costs of delivering required local infrastructure.

 

Projects funded under LIGS include roads, stormwater facilities, public open space and land for community facilities.

 

LIGS funding applies to rezoned land in the North West and South West Growth Centres, and precincts in Wollongong (West Dapto) and Bayside (Rockdale Urban Renewal Areas) as defined in Planning Circular 17-002.
