Development contribution levies are paid by developers for the portion of Council infrastructure required to support growth.
A recent review of Council’s Development Contributions Policy confirmed technical aspects of Council’s development contribution process and compliance with legislative changes. This review did not result in a major change to the Policy. However, changes to the supporting information were made to align with the assumptions and work programmes within Council’s 2015-2025 Long Term Plan.
Council welcomes your submission on the proposed changes. The submission period will run from Wednesday 29 July 2015 closing at 5pm on Wednesday 26 August 2015. You can present your submission in person to Council on Wednesday 9 September 2015.
