Subdivision Financial ContributionsTakohatanga pūtea

Financial Contributions

The financial contributions provide for ongoing residential, commercial and industrial development and the new financial contributions spread the upgrading costs more fairly among those who directly benefit from the land development.

The new charges shift some of the cost from the general ratepayer towards 'user-pays' for developers and subdividers. The new charges more accurately reflect the additional costs that development places on the City's infrastructure. The charges will enable the City's community services (libraries, parks, reserves, sportsgrounds) and essential services (sewerage, stormwater, water and roading) to be upgraded to accommodate the additional demand created by development and subdivision.

How they will be collected

Financial contributions will be collected:

  • when a section is subdivided creating additional lots, or
  • when more than one dwelling is constructed on a lot or site.

Financial contributions will also be charged for dwelling units created in commercial and industrial zones.

The contributions do not apply to a supplementary unit/dwelling.

The connection fees for services are additional to these financial contributions.

Adjusting the charges

These charges are subject to adjustment for inflation.

The charges will be adjusted annually on 1 July each year, the adjustment will be in accordance with the Statistics NZ Producers Price Index.

When financial contributions are due

Financial Contributions (Residential) will be assessed as a condition of your resource consent for multi-unit development or for subdivision. The fee must be paid prior to building consent or 224(c) certification for your titles, whichever occurs first

This is a guide to some of the financial contributions set out in the District Plan. Please refer to the District Plan if clarification is required or speak to a consent planner.
