A Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC) for the Pyrmont Peninsula will help fund the new Pyrmont Metro station. It is designed to ensure development that benefits from the new station will also contribute towards its cost.
The SIC will be collected from new development within the Pyrmont Peninsula Special Contributions Area identified on the urban intensification sites map.
The SIC will contribute up to $280 million towards the new Pyrmont Metro station and associated infrastructure.
More information on the SIC can be found in the:
- Ministerial Determination: how the SIC is levied.
- Ministerial Direction: directing the condition that is applied to development consents.
- Order: the signed Order.
- Maps showing the Special Contributions Area and Urban Intensification Sites where the SIC will apply.
The proposed SIC was exhibited for public feedback from 26 November 2021 to Friday 4 February 2022.
All exhibited documents related to the Pyrmont SIC are available on our planning portal.
Infrastructure Contributions Reform
The infrastructure contributions system is being reformed under the recommendations of the Productivity Commission. This includes the proposed introduction of a broad-based regional approach towards State infrastructure contributions for the Greater Sydney, Illawarra Shoalhaven, Central Coast and Hunter regions.
As part of the proposed reform recommendations there will be consideration of transitional and savings arrangements for the existing state contributions framework which may impact on the proposed Pyrmont SIC.
