How can we make better use of Value Capture?
The Australian Government is opening up a conversation on how we can make better use of value capture to fund the critical transport infrastructure needed for the future.
The need for further transport infrastructure projects is greater than can presently be funded through traditional grant funding and user charges. Value capture can provide for a more efficient and equitable approach to infrastructure development and delivery. This is why the Australian Government has a strong interest in making greater use of value capture.
The Australian Government has released a discussion paper which highlights the challenges and opportunities value capture presents and sets out a range of possible options for action by the Australian Government to stimulate the use of value capture in the development and delivery of transport infrastructure.
Most importantly, this paper seeks your views. By laying out the case and some of the implementation options ahead of us, the Government trusts this paper will generate further ideas from other governments, from industry and the community.
The Australian Government invites and welcomes feedback.
