Development contribution levies are paid by developers for the portion of Council infrastructure required to support growth.
The recent review of Council’s Development Contributions Policy clarified the technical aspects of Council’s existing development contribution regime and ensured that the policy complies with legislation. This process did not result in any major changes and the 2018/19 Development Contributions Policy is fundamentally the same as that worked through with Developers in 2015.
Consultation on the policy appendices resulted in nine submission, four of which presented their submission to Council at the hearing. Council adopted the Development Contributions Policy including appendices at their meeting on 27 June.
The appendices to the 2018/19 Development Contributions Policy were updated to align with the assumptions and work programmes within Council’s 2018-2028 Long Term Plan.
