Community Infrastructure Levy

What is the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)? 

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a one-off payment that must be paid before a building permit can be issued, as specified in the Victorian Planning and Environment Act 1987 and the Building Act 1993. 

The CIL is payable by a property owner to fund local infrastructure that is required to meet the future needs of their community.  Each growth area precinct has different infrastructure needs, and therefore a unique list of infrastructure requirements. The infrastructure that the CIL payments are allocated towards is set out in the Development Contributions Plan (DCP) for that growth area, or precinct. This DCP is an incorporated document in the Melton Planning Scheme.

Note: A development levy is also paid by the developer to fund roads, drainage and park improvements. This development levy should not be confused with the CIL.

How can I pay?

You can pay the levy by completing the Community Infrastructure Levy payment form(PDF, 597KB) and lodging it in one of the following methods:

  • In person: at Council’s Melton or Caroline Springs Civic Centres
  • Email: planningsupport@melton.vic.gov.au 
  • Mail: Melton City Council, PO Box 21 Melton Vic 3337 (Cheques to be made out to Melton City Council)
