A development contribution is a levy on new developments collected under the Local Government Act 2002.
Council may require a development contribution to be made when a resource consent is granted, a building consent is granted and/or an authorisation for a service connection is granted. Council may also require a development contribution to be made on the approval of a certificate of acceptance.
Development contributions are assessed on water, wastewater, stormwater, reserves, community infrastructure and transport activities.
