SC3.4 Glossary and abbreviations
|The division of costs so that each user pays for their proportional use or planned allocation of the assets needed to provide the Desired Standard of Service.
|The Infrastructure demand for the network, assessed for a development application. This is expressed in Trips for Transport, Impervious Hectares (Imp Ha) for Stormwater, Equivalent persons (EP) for Sewer and Water Services and Equivalent residential lots for Recreation Facilities.
|Date from which a local government has estimated its projected infrastructure demands and costs.
|Broad hectare land
|Future land supply for residential development within the Urban Expansion and Urban Residential zones. The identified land is known as Broad hectare land and possesses the characteristics of being suitable, potentially available and with servicing intent for water supply and/or sewerage.
|Infrastructure or other works that ensures the land is suitable for development for its intended purpose
|Capital works program
|The schedule of works and capital costs outlined in the Plans for Trunk Infrastructure and associated Infrastructure Schedules
|Rate applied to development in accordance with Council Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (AICR)
|A generic reference to water supply regions/zones, sewerage catchments/sub catchments, stormwater catchments, transport sectors and open space
|Cost Impact Assessment Policy
|Cost Impact assessments (undertaken on applications that are in any way inconsistent with the assumptions contained in the planning scheme) will be undertaken in accordance with Council Cost Impact Assessment Policy
|Defined water/sewer service area
|The area declared under sections 161 -163 of the Water Supply (safety and Reliability) Act for provision of retail water services and/or sewerage services to customers. Areas within the service area will generally be able to be connected directly and separately to the service provider's infrastructure for the area
|Degree of Saturation
|The degree of saturation (used in regards to transport modelling) is the arrival flow divided by the entry (absorption) capacity of a lane or intersection.
|Unit of demand that applies to each type of infrastructure to express the demand
|An amount offset against the Infrastructure Charge for the relevant infrastructure network to recognise the value (less any contingency amounts) of land or items of trunk infrastructure supplied as part of a development.
|A time period used for Planning Assumptions e.g. 2011 – 2016 and timeframe where the identified land may be made available for development.
|The area of land available for development. It does not include land that cannot be developed due to constraints such as conservation land, flood affected land or steep slope.
|The process of expressing the value of a future asset (or revenue stream) in present day terms.
|The present value of a future asset.
|A property-based unit of measurement used to indicate infrastructure demand. The demand from a property, with a single detached dwelling is 1 ET.
|A unit of measurement used for determining water demand or the quality and/or quantity of sewerage discharge for a person in a detached house/dwelling.
|Estimated Resident Population
|The estimated total population less visitors.
|All relevant background studies and reports prepared in relation to the preparation of an LGIP, e.g. planning reports documenting the network planning, preparation of demand generation rates and report(s) documenting the preparation of the planning assumptions.
|Outright, unqualified ownership of real estate, free of any liens or other claims against title.
|First principles assessment
|The process for determining the demand generated by development which is significantly different to those land uses envisaged in the LGIP.
|The part of a catchment / site which is the impervious area, expressed as a decimal or percentage.
|Areas identified in the LGIP as possible urban expansion areas for specific uses, Areas subject to further investigation. Investigation areas are not included in planning assumptions or in the PIA.
|Future urban expansion areas
|Areas identified for urban growth for specific uses and included in the planning assumptions and PIA.
|A surface or area within a Stormwater drainage catchment where the majority of rainfall will become runoff (no infiltration).
|Infrastructure agreements register
|A register of all Infrastructure Agreements in the Council Area.
|The credit which may be attributed for previous contributions or an existing lawful use or existing lawful right permitted under the current Planning Scheme, on the site at the time of lodging the application. Infrastructure credits are determined for each network.
|The proportion of a site from which rainfall will become runoff (i.e. no infiltration)
|LGIP Planning assumptions
|The assumptions about the type, scale, location and timing of future urban growth, which have informed preparation of the LGIP.
|Capacity which may exist within the existing trunk infrastructure assets and which is required to service future planned growth.
|The demand expected (in size, form, location and sequencing) based on Council's Planning Scheme and LGIP Planned Infrastructure calculations.
|Gladstone Regional Council Planning Scheme (2014)
|Planned trunk infrastructure
|Trunk infrastructure that is included in Council's capital works program and contained in reports and strategies (PFTI), reviewed from time to time.
|Value on a given date of a series of future cash flows, discounted to reflect the time value of money. The present value is calculated as at the base date.
|Planning and Forecasting Information Unit
|The Department of Infrastructure and Planning's business unit responsible for forecasting growth across Queensland
|Proposed application demand
|Infrastructure demand calculated for a specific proposed development and site.
|Development on developed land where the intensity or density of the land is increased.
|State infrastructure plans
|Plans for the supply of State infrastructure in a Local Government area prepared by the supplier of the State infrastructure.
|Statistical Local Area
|An Australian Standard Geographical Classification defined area.
|Stormwater Quality Improvement Devices
|Infrastructure that serves the function of improving stormwater quality.
|The number of trips generated from a traffic district between a generator and attractor (or from origin to destination) as a single trip
|A sector or series of sectors identified within the traffic modelling as being representative of a broader pattern of traffic use within a given area.
|Unplanned trunk infrastructure
|Infrastructure that is not illustrated within Council's Plans for Trunk Infrastructure (PFTI).
|The realistic extent of development anticipated to be achieved when a site (or locality) is fully developed.
