The growth areas infrastructure contribution (GAIC) is a contribution on certain land in the growth areas of metropolitan Melbourne. GAIC may apply if your land is in:

  • Cardinia,
  • Casey,
  • Hume,
  • Melton,
  • Mitchell,
  • Whittlesea, or
  • Wyndham

The liability to pay GAIC only arises once in relation to land, at the first occurrence of a GAIC event, although payment may be deferred in certain circumstances.

A GAIC certificate tells you of any GAIC liability attached to your land. It may contain the following information:

  • Amount of GAIC due and unpaid,
  • Amount of deferred GAIC, including interest,
  • The amount of GAIC subject to a staged payment arrangement, and
  • Potential amount of GAIC, if a proposed GAIC event occurred in respect of the land in the contribution area.

To apply for your certificate, you must complete an application form on screen and submit electronically.
