Wyong Employment Zone

The NSW Government introduced a special infrastructure contribution (SIC) to help pay for new infrastructure in the Wyong Employment Zone.

The SIC will help fund:

  • state and regional roads
  • planning, delivery, and implementation.

Current rates

The SIC rate is adjusted annually according to the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI).
