There are two contributions plans currently active in the Ku-ring-gai Council Area. This page relates to the s94A contributions plan called Ku-ring-gai s94A Contributions Plan 2015. This type of plan is also known as an ‘indirect’ plan or a ‘percentage levy’ plan.
There is also a s94 contributions plan active in the Ku-ring-gai area which applies to different types of development and funds a separate works programme. It is called Ku-ring-gai Contributions Plan 2010.
Ku-ring-gai s94A Contributions Plan 2015 came into effect on Easter Sunday 27 March 2016. There is a phase in period as it will be applied to all relevant DAs and CDCs lodged or otherwise notified after that date.

Application of s94A
It is important to note that the established s94 plan, Ku-ring-gai Contributions Plan 2010, is not affected by the introduction of this complementary and mutually exclusive document. Any development that is subject to direct s94 contributions under Ku-ring-gai Contributions Plan 2010 continues to be so.
Indirect contributions under s94A relate only to development that is not subject to s94 contributions under Ku-ring-gai Contributions Plan 2010. These contributions also support a completely separate works program.
