Draft Development Contributions Policy

Read our Draft Development Contributions Policy here

The Development Contributions Policy allows the Council to require contributions of money or land when new development occurs. The policy has been reviewed and significant changes to the current policy are proposed.

The document sets out these proposals and the revised policy. We are seeking feedback on these proposed changes, which include:

  • A number of amendments to reflect the Government changing this part of the Local Government Act 2002 in August 2014.
  • A number of other changes to the methodology for calculating contributions
  • Changes to update assumptions
  • Changes to reflect changes to other Council policies.
