The DCP is a tool within the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme that requires landowners to contribute towards the cost of upgrading road, drainage, and other essential infrastructure to service their properties. Landowners must pay a contribution before they can subdivide or develop their property.
The DCP first came into effect on 6 June 2019 when properties from 1 to 73 Creswell Street (except 2 Creswell Street) and 1 to 3 Cooma Street, Crib Point were rezoned from Industrial 3 Zone to the Neighbourhood Residential Zone Schedule 1 as part of Amendment C210morn to the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme. This amendment also applied the Development Contributions Plan Overlay Schedule 1 (DCPO1) to these properties.
Yes. Under the current DCP, the cost of delivering the infrastructure is shared between Council and landowners as follows:
The current DCP calculates contributions based on the length of property lot frontage, with landowners charged a levy for every 20.12 metres of lot frontage.
As of 28 July 2023, the current contribution amount is $25,746.39 per 20.12 metres of lot frontage, noting that:
Landowners must pay their contribution:
Landowners only need to pay their contribution once.
The Shire is responsible for delivering the infrastructure as the Development Agency for the DCP.
Under the DCP, the Shire must deliver the infrastructure when whichever one of the following occurs first:
(a) 50% of the landowner contributions necessary to deliver the project have been collected by Council, or
(b) before 6 June 2024 (which is five years from when the DCP was first introduced into the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme).
The landowner will have to pay the full cost of constructing the infrastructure that is required to access and occupy their property.
Any works to be delivered by the landowner will need to be approved by the relevant authority and constructed to their requirements and satisfaction.
The Mornington Peninsula Shire is responsible for regularly monitoring, reporting and reviewing contributions collected and spent in accordance with the DCP. The Mornington Peninsula Shire also monitors and assesses any external factors that may impact on the costs or timing of infrastructure delivery under the DCP. The DCP is therefore formally reviewed and updated as necessary every 5 years, or more frequently if required.
