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 must be consistent with the content of that policy.
We can confirm which policy is applicable to your development. Ask our Development Contributions team if you need to view policies prior to 1 July 2018.
