Maiden Gully Development Contributions Plan Part 1 of 2
Adopted by Council on September 16, 2020 the Maiden Gully Development Contribution Plan (MGDCP) has been prepared by Mesh with the assistance of the City of Greater Bendigo.
The MGDCP has been prepared to enable the equitable and efficient delivery of a range of infrastructure to service planned growth within the Maiden Gully growth area. The Maiden Gully PSP area covers approximately 507 hectares in area that will provide for the establishment of a new community of approximately 12,000 people.
In general terms, the MGDCP identifies the necessary infrastructure and establishes a framework to ensure that the cost of infrastructure is shared equitably by all development proponents and by the broader community where relevant. The MGDCP provides certainty for all developers and the future community by ensuring that all necessary infrastructure will be provided in a timely way and to a specified standard as development progressively takes place.
In addition to identifying the necessary infrastructure and defining the means by which the cost of the infrastructure will be shared, the MGDCP includes an Implementation Strategy. The Implementation Strategy sets out the means by which the development process will be managed to ensure that necessary infrastructure is delivered in a timely and efficient way whilst also ensuring that Council is not exposed to unreasonable risk in managing the MGDCP into the future.
Integral to the success of the implementation strategy will be a detailed understanding of the likely location and timing of development and adoption of a co-operative working relationship with developers throughout the life of the MGDCP.
