Developer funded projects


Council can levy new development for funds for specific projects across the city. As can be seen below the current update of these regulations identify a number of projects with our Ward. There are a number of interesting aspects to these proposed work.

  • Total expenditure over 5+ years of nearly $11,000,000
  • Whilst West Ward represents around 25% of the city(including the CBD) our allocation is just over 20% of funds to be spent Due to the CBD, we should be receiving at least 10% more than other Wards. So we are being ‘short-sheeted’ by around 30%
