Development contributions

If you’re planning a subdivision, an extension to a commercial building or a property development, you may need to pay a development contribution.

We have developed a guide to our development contributions policy to answer common questions like:

  • What are development contributions? 
  • Who pays? 
  • When are they paid? 
  • How do you calculate a development contribution?

Examples have been provided to help you understand how the Development Contributions Policy works and how the policy might apply to your proposed development. This document is a starting point. It provides you with a general understanding of Development Contributions before you plunge into the detail of the policy itself.

If you have any more questions or need clarification, call us on 06 356 8199 or visit our Customer Service Centre and speak to the duty planning officer.

Base fees and PPI adjustment tables

The documents listed below provide the base fees for the 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2012 Development Contributions Policy and the Producers' Price Index (PPI) construction adjustments for 2007 and 2009.

The 2007 Development Contributions Policy introduced the following clause "If a development contribution is not paid within 12 months of the date the assessment was made, then the development contribution shall increase annually on 1 July each year by the amount of increase in the Producer's Price Index-Construction for that year." 

Where a development contribution was levied under the 2004 or 2006 Polices, but has not yet been paid, the amount payable is calculated using the tables titled "Base Fees 2004" or "Base Fees 2006".

Where a development contribution was levied under the 2007 or 2009 Polices, but has not yet been paid, the amount payable is calculated using the tables titled "Base Fees 2007 and Annual PPI Adjustments" or "Base Fees 2009 and Annual PPI Adjustments".

These fees do not include GST.
