Refer to the policy that was in force at the time your resource consent, building consent, Certificate of Acceptance and/or service connection was lodged. Development contributions will generally be based on the content of the policy in force at the time of lodgement, but please check with us to confirm which policy is applicable to your development.  

Ask our Development Contributions team if you need to view policies prior to 1 July 2019.  

Our most recent development contribution policies are:

Development Contributions Policy 2024/25

Operative from 5 July 2024 to 30 June 2027 

Charges in the 2024/25 Development Contributions Policy have been phased in, with some charges also capped at a specific level.  

All charges in this Policy are phased in over a three‚Äźyear period. This means the increase from the 2023/24 charges, in the first year of this policy is a third of the overall increase to the base charges, the second year is two thirds of the overall increase, with the full base charges in force in the third year of the Policy. 

Total residential base charges in the Peacocke Stage 1 and Peacocke Stage 2 catchments are capped at 50% of the overall increase from the prior 2023/24 development contributions policy base charges to the 2024/25 development contributions policy base charges. These capped base charges are then phased in over three years. For each policy year, the total residential base charges in the Lake Rotokauri stormwater catchment are capped at the Peacocke Stage 2 (Mangakotukutuku stormwater catchment). 

See section 9 of the Policy for more details.
