Should landowners fail to make their contribution they will be unable to obtain subdivision clearances or commence contruction in accordance with an approved building permit. They will need to make sure they can meet this obligation prior to submitting a subdivision application OR prior to the issue of a Building Licence/as condition of development, whichever is earlier.

  • Stay and continue with your approved use, or
  • Redevelop your land for industrial use.
