Submission on the Newcastle draft Community Infrastructure Incentive Policy
UDIA appreciates the council’s efforts to enhance the delivery of community infrastructure to support urban renewal in the City of Newcastle. We acknowledge the opportunities to enrich the liveability of the city, particularly in areas targeted for increased density, by working with the development industry through an incentives regime. To achieve the intended beneficial outcomes, the Policy must get the incentives right. UDIA submits that the draft Policy misses key opportunities and adds to the uncertainty facing the development industry when considering high potential sites Newcastle.
