Development Contributions


The Northern Beaches Council Section 94A Plan (S94A Plan) applies to all development applications and applications for complying development certificates for development within the former Warringah Council area.

Through this Plan, a flat percentage of the total cost of development is levied when a development consent or complying development certificate is issued.  Development which has a total cost of up to $100,000 is exempt from the payment of this contribution.

The S94A Plan is reviewed annually to align with Council’s Operational Plan and Budget. It incorporates Works Schedules for funds collected between 2001 and 2006 under the Warringah Section 94 Development Contributions Plan 2001 and funds collected since 2006 under the ‘Fixed’ development consent levies system under S94A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

For development in the former Pittwater Council and Manly Council areas, please consult with the relevant Section 94 plan pages.
