3.3 Infrastructure categories

The infrastructure planned to be delivered within the PDA will fall into one of the following categories:

  1. trunk infrastructure
  2. non-trunk infrastructure
  3. other infrastructure.

Table 3 includes infrastructure which is trunk infrastructure, non-trunk infrastructure and other infrastructure.  As such, the inclusion of infrastructure in table 3 does not make it eligible for an infrastructure charges offset.  To determine if infrastructure is eligible for an offset, refer to the Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP).

3.3.1 Trunk infrastructure

Trunk infrastructure is the high order shared infrastructure that is planned to service the wider catchments in the PDA, rather than individual development sites. Trunk infrastructure may be delivered by the relevant infrastructure provider such as Brisbane City Council, Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) or EDQ, or by developers if required by a condition of a PDA development approval.


3.3.2 Non-trunk infrastructure

Non-trunk infrastructure is the lower order infrastructure which generally services a single development site, is internal to a development site, or connects the development site to trunk infrastructure.

Non-trunk infrastructure will be provided by the applicant, in accordance with the relevant responsible entity’s requirements and as specified in a condition of a PDA development approval.  Non-trunk infrastructure will not be eligible for a charges offset.


3.3.3 Other infrastructure

Other infrastructure includes infrastructure which is not part of Brisbane City Council or QUU's infrastructure networks. Other infrastructure may include necessary development infrastructure or provision for upgrades to the electricity, gas, telecommunications or state transport networks.

Other infrastructure may be delivered by the local or state government, other infrastructure providers or by developers who may be required to deliver or preserve the ability to provide this infrastructure by a condition of a PDA development approval.
