Development Contributions increases

Development Contributions are a charge on developments that helps pay for the infrastructure that services this growth (e.g. wastewater pipes, roads, reserves, treatment plants – and soon community facilities like pools and libraries). The charge is usually included in building consent invoices.

This charge has increased by $8849 for any building consents lodged on or after 1 February 2022. Further increases, estimated at up to $5000, are likely from 1 July 2022.
