Tauranga City Council uses development contributions to fund growth-related capital expenditure. Council has had a Development Contributions Policy since 1 July 2004. This policy is reviewed annually and an amended policy made operative on 1 July of each subsequent year. We are currently in the process of completing this annual review. As part of this review process, Council has adopted a draft Development Contributions Policy 2019/20 for consultation.
Any organisation, group or member of the public may make a submission to Council with regard to the content of the draft policy.
We are consulting on this in parallel with Council’s Annual Plan 2019/20 proposals. A statement of proposal outlining the proposed changes to the Development Contributions Policy is available below, along with the full draft policy and submission form for you to send us your feedback.
All feedback must be received by 5pm on Tuesday, 23 April 2019.
