Infrastructure contributions for strata subdivisions

Here you will find information about the way infrastructure contributions are calculated for strata subdivisions

Water and wastewater contributions

The way in which the water service connections are applied will impact the level of water and wastewater contributions required.

Applicants can choose to service their development by installing either:

  • individual meters at an agreed road frontage adjacent to a water main for individually subdivided or strata titled lots
  • a master meter at an agreed road frontage adjacent to a water main to serve the whole property with Water Corporation, or the developer installing acceptable sub-meters to each unit
  • a combination of these.

Lots serviced individually will normally pay more water and wastewater contributions than those lots served by common services.

The number of connections to sewer does not impact the wastewater infrastructure contribution requirements.

Infrastructure contributions for water supply and wastewater are based on the meter size and flow rate combination. We refer to our meter-based contribution table for the factors which are used to determine the amount of standard infrastructure contributions (SIC's) required for your development.

Infrastructure contributions for water supply and wastewater are based on meter size and flow rate.
