The NSW Government introduced a special infrastructure contribution (SIC) to help pay for new infrastructure in the Warnervale Town Centre.
The SIC will help fund:
- state and regional roads
- biodiversity offsets
- planning, delivery, and implementation
- bus services.
The SIC rate is adjusted annually according to the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI).
