Section 7.11 Contributions Plan - adopted
Provides the detailed plan for contributions for phase 1 of the Hospital Precinct Structure Plan
On 24 May 2022, Council considered reports on the outcomes of the public exhibition of the draft Frenchs Forest Town Centre Section 7.11 Contributions Plan and the draft Northern Beaches Section 7.12 Contributions Plan 2022.
An updated Section 7.11 Contributions Plan was provided to Council for consideration which included several post-exhibition changes. These changes predominately related to the removal of traffic infrastructure that is the responsibility of the NSW Government to provide.
There was no change to the Northern Beaches Section 7.12 plan.
Council resolved to adopt both plans, with the updated Section 7.11 Contributions Plan to be forwarded to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal for review. The Council Minutes are available here.
Both the Frenchs Forest Town Centre Section 7.11 Contributions Plan came into force on 1 June 2022.
The Contributions Plan will be submitted to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal for review. This review is anticipated to take 6-12 months.
The Frenchs Forest 2041 Place Strategy was finalised on 17 December 2021. The place strategy will deliver 2,000 new homes (1,000 of these in the town centre; 1,000 in the adjacent residential areas) with a range of housing including townhouses, terraces, apartments and aged care; and homes for essential workers such as nurses and paramedics.
The place strategy will support the implementation of phase one of the Northern Beaches Hospital Precinct Structure Plan.
In line with this, the planning controls for phase one will begin on 1 June 2022. From this time development applications will be able to be lodged.
As part of this, we prepared the draft Frenchs Forest Town Centre Section 7.11 Contributions Plan (also referred to as the Section 7.11 plan) which allow us to levy developments to fund the delivery of high quality public facilities.
For the Section 7.11 plan to apply to this land, we also needed to make amendments to the Northern Beaches Section 7.12 Contributions Plan 2022 (Section 7.12 plan).
The draft Frenchs Forest Town Centre Section 7.11 Contributions Plan and the draft Northern Beaches Section 7.12 Contributions Plan 2022 were publicly exhibited from 18 March to 1 May 2022.
Both plans were adopted by Council at the meeting on Tuesday 24 May 2022.

The 'How we got here' section a little further down the page keeps you informed of the other activities underpinning this project.
A lot of planning and consultation has gone into the development of the Frenchs Forest Town Centre.
The NSW Government's Frenchs Forest 2041 Place Strategy was publicly exhibited from July to September 2021 and included the Special Infrastructure Contributions (SIC) scheme which provides up to $37.3 million to pay for the required infrastructure including roads, public transport infrastructure, pedestrian and cycling paths, health facilities, emergency services, schools and open space improvements.
The place strategy and rezoning was finalised on 17 December 2021.
