Mooroopna West Growth Corridor, 2009

The Mooroopna West Growth Corridor comprises 329 hectares and is bounded by the established township area situated on the western side of the Echuca-Mooroopna Road, Cornish Road to the north, the Goulburn Valley Highway (Shepparton Bypass) reservation to the west and the Midland Highway to the south.

Mooroopna West Growth Corridor - DCPO3

The development contribution rates are adjusted annually for the duration of the Mooroopna West Growth Corridor Development Contribution Plan.

The construction costs are adjusted using the Building Price Index (BPI) for Regional Victoria contained within the latest version of Rawlinson's Australia Construction Handbook. It will be calculated after 1 July each year on the date that the BPI is either published or any initial forecast figures are confirmed.

The land acquisition valuations for all lands acquired by Council within the corridor will also be adjusted in accordance with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on the date that the CPI is published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This annual update will take account of the previous quarterly increases published by the Bureau.

The contribution rates were adjusted on 29 March 2017 and are applicable for the 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017 period. The next adjustment is due in mid-October 2017 owing to the time delay in the finalisation and confirmation of the June 2017 BPI figures by Rawlinson's.
