THE TURNBULL GOVERNMENT RELEASES ITS VALUE CAPTURE DISCUSSION PAPER

(It has been pointed out with Value Capture the artist should have depicted high-rise!!)

FROM CAAN …

WHAT we are experiencing in this Nation and especially in NSW is a transfer … a pipeline of our Public Assets to private interests with some $130 Billion worth of public assets sold off in NSW alone!

CAAN has touched on this topic from time to time, and we offer some “food for thought” … it comes back to the “Culture which is established at the very Top” ..

Value Capture is about billing the people who get the benefit of the Infrastructure Project contrary to those in its path with Compulsory Acquisition, and being shortchanged on the market value of their properties.

WILL the “I am not a Totalitarian Government” tax those that get the benefits to give it to the people who lose their homes or businesses?

A prime example of this is WestCONnex during the construction phase of 2 – 5 years the victims have lost $Millions!

VALUE CAPTURE … it’s pernicious … it’s saying to everyone in the community “I have got this idea and I am going to make you pay for my idea”!

THE GREENS NOT KEEN ON PRIVATE HIGH SPEED RAIL PLAN WITH VALUE CAPTURE AND FOREIGN INVESTMENT

THIS IS WHY!

“The Greens have concerns about information absent from today’s announced CLARA proposal, apparently due to commercial in confidence considerations.

“Being asked to ‘just trust us’ is not good enough for a project of this scale.”

THE TURNBULL GOVERNMENT RELEASES ITS VALUE CAPTURE DISCUSSION PAPER

Australian Government releases Value Capture Discussion Paper
November 20, 2016

USING ‘value capture’ to help deliver more infrastructure is the subject of a discussion paper released last week by Urban Infrastructure Minister Paul Fletcher and Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation Angus Taylor.

The discussion paper examines the potential to more widely use value capture funding to supplement the billions of dollars each year already spent by all three levels of Australian governments on infrastructure.

It sets out a range of options for the Australian Government to action to stimulate the use of value capture in the development and delivery of infrastructure and describes various potential value capture approaches—including tools already in use by state and local governments.

(The NSW Government is investigating the use of value capture to help deliver the proposed Parramatta light rail project / Transport for NSW.)

Mr Fletcher said the Australian Government was seeking public and industry input on the value capture concept.

“Many states and territories already use value capture funding models to support major upgrades,” Mr Fletcher said.

“Similarly, developer charges are commonly used by local government authorities to help deliver utilities for new housing developments.

“If we are to make better use of value capture, governments must first understand why beneficiaries might be willing to pay for projects; identifying who these beneficiaries are and when they might materially gain from projects funded through this method.”

Mr Taylor said there was a need to find new funding models within the constrained fiscal environment.

“Government is getting smarter about linking transport investment with long term planning for affordable homes, closer to where people work and closer to services like schools and hospitals,” Mr Taylor said.

“Through City Deals, we are looking at changing the way we fund infrastructure.

“Encouraging public private partnerships to pay for road and rail corridors where land values will increase, can be a wise way to invest taxpayers’ money.”

Submissions on the discussion paper will be open until 3 February 2017. More information is available from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development website at
