A Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC) is proposed to help fund the delivery of infrastructure in the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.


The proposed SIC provides for developer contributions of up to $1.1 billion to be collected from developers to deliver important State and regional infrastructure. The types of infrastructure the SIC is expected to help fund:

  • State and regional roads
  • Public and active transport like bus, rail and cycle paths
  • Public and open space
  • Biodiversity offset
  • Hospital, ambulance and community health facilities
  • Primary, secondary and special purpose education facilities
  • Justice facilities, such as court houses
  • Emergency facilities including police, fire and rescue
  • Community facilities, like multi-use community and cultural facilities.


The proposed SIC was on exhibition from 10 November 2020 - 26 February 2021.


We are currently reviewing and considering all submissions received before finalising the SIC.
