Liverpool. Rates could rise

Liverpool City Council rates could rise because of development in Austral and Leppington North. Liverpool ratepayers may have to cover a $63 million shortfall for community and major recreation facilities in the precincts. At the end of last year the state government announced more than 50,000 new residents, 16,000 houses, 10 schools, 89 hectares of parks, and 59 hectares of sporting fields were planned for the new release site. Council may have to pay an estimated $105 million from its pocket too because state legislation limits section 94 developer contributions to $30,000 a lot.
