Providing $1.58 billion to help fund key infrastructure in the Greater Macarthur Growth Area

The Department has prepared Greater Macarthur 2040: An interim plan for the Greater Macarthur Growth Area which sets out the strategic planning framework for the Growth Area. When finalised, Greater Macarthur 2040 will guide precinct planning within the Growth Area.


To ensure key infrastructure to support the plan is funded and delivered in time with demand, a Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC) is proposed for the Greater Macarthur Growth Area. The proposed SIC framework will enable the Department to collect contributions from developers to fund specific infrastructure items identified through the strategic planning process, including:

  • Road and intersection upgrades: $1.2 billion
  • Land for future public transport corridor: $96.2 million
  • Land for schools: $60 million
  • Land for community health facilities: $1.5 million
  • Land for emergency services and police stations: $1.75 million
  • Land for biodiversity conservation: $173.9 million
  • Planning and delivery costs: $23.6 million


The proposed SIC for Greater Macarthur was on exhibition until 8 February 2019. Thank you to all who provided feedback, submissions will be published online shortly.
