Round 1 of the AIF provided $75.9 million to support the delivery of community infrastructure in high growth areas of Blacktown and The Hills Local Government Areas (LGAs) in North West Sydney. This included funding for councils to deliver local roads, stormwater infrastructure and public open space projects to unlock plans for development of new homes and employment land.
Round 1 projects
Round 1 provided Blacktown City Council with $45 million and The Hills Shire Council with $30.96 million to co-fund and accelerate the delivery of 14 community infrastructure projects worth $145.99 million. Under the scheme, local developer contributions were capped at $50,000 per dwelling from 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2020.
The funding assisted in the projects being fast-tracked into construction and will support the development of 40,000 new homes, 115 hectares of employment land and will create up to 1,000 new jobs during construction.
