Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (AICR)

The AICR was the infrastructure charging regime that applied to developments approved within the City of Gold Coast between 1 July 2011 and 20 June 2015. It has five versions, each is applicable between different dates. The relevant version to apply will depend upon the date of the development approval.

On 1 July 2011, the Queensland Government introduced the State Planning Regulatory Provision (adopted charges) to give effect to maximum standard infrastructure charges for residential and non-residential development across Queensland. Consequently Council introduced the AICR.

Council resolved to amend the AICR on four occasions, reflecting the return of responsibility for water and wastewater to Council (AICR version 1.1), the Construction Kickstart initiative (AICR version 1.2), allowances for CPI (AICR version 1.3), and the adoption of maximum charges (AICR version 1.4).
