The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) helps cover the cost of infrastructure in new communities including outdoor recreation areas, community centres and libraries.  Development Contribution Plans are part of the Wyndham Planning Scheme, and these plans outline the infrastructure to be funded by the CIL in various areas.

In Wyndham, the developer can enter into an agreement with Council and pay the Community Infrastructure Levy upfront. There are many new estates where the developer has chosen not to pay upfront, therefore the land owner is required to pay the CIL prior to the issuing of a building permit.
