Council provides infrastructure like water, wastewater, roading, etc. to service existing residents and businesses, and also to accommodate future growth.
Along with many other local councils, our Council considers it appropriate that where new subdivisions and developments benefit from using existing infrastructure provided by the community, or where those developments require infrastructure extensions, the cost of that infrastructure should be met by those who create the demand.
Read more about our Development and Financial Contributions Policy.
This policy affects many types of development and anyone involved in land subdivision, land use consents and building consents should read this policy to see if their development will involve the need for development contribution payments.
If you wish to discuss the likely effects on your development please contact us.
