What are Infrastructure Schemes?

Basic and General Infrastructure Schemes will supplement existing schemes such as planning conditions, deeds and bonding arrangements.

These schemes may replace the need for complex infrastructure agreements with individual landowners, which has slowed administration processes considerably. They provide additional tools to help unlock investment and create a transparent process that enables new infrastructure to be delivered to our communities. They will also ensure that those who serve to gain from works contribute their fair share of infrastructure costs.

Infrastructure Schemes Pilot Project

To assist in the implementation of this new approach, the Department has initiated an Infrastructure Schemes Pilot Project to improve our understanding of the financial tools that can be used to deliver infrastructure. The Pilot Project will run for approximately 12 months.

Following an EOI process conducted in February 2017, eight project nominations were received by the Department.  The selected projects and sponsors are:

  • Bowden/Brompton - Charles Sturt with support from Landowners
  • Mount Barker - Mount Barker Council and Lanser Communities
  • Kilburn/Blair Athol - Port Adelaide Enfield Council

Scenarios range from infill or catalyst sites to urban growth areas, providing a reasonable breadth of issues against which the new mechanism can be tested.

Other nominated project sponsors will be offered support through the preparation and sharing of appropriate templates and documents developed through the Pilot Project, and some will also be invited to form part of the Infrastructure Reference Group.
