The revised draft Plan identifies a range of infrastructure items to support the proposed growth in Rhodes. Increasing the provision of open space and providing a local school are clear priorities for the Rhodes community.

Infrastructure needed to support growth in Rhodes has been identified by technical studies and further consultation with Government agencies, the community and landowners. The Department will continue to work with Canada Bay Council, state agencies and infrastructure providers to ensure continued future alignment of infrastructure needs and priorities.


Sharing the cost of infrastructure is an important principle. Development contributions are payments made by a developer to contribute to shared local infrastructure, facilities or services and certain types of state infrastructure. 


Development contributions may be in the form of a monetary offer or works in kind such as delivering required infrastructure as part of developments. Collection can be achieved in several ways including a combination of Special Infrastructure Contributions, Local Infrastructure Contributions and Voluntary Planning Agreements. 


The funding mechanisms for the delivery of the various infrastructure items required to support growth in the precinct will be determined following the exhibition of the draft Plan. Development will not be able to proceed in the precinct until arrangements are made for the delivery of infrastructure.
