Proposed Amended 2019/20 Development Contributions Policy

The designation of the road corridor and the three water services within the road corridor proposed to service the Howard Street Development Area is now beyond appeal.  Work has been undertaken in respect of developing concept plans and establishing the costs associated with providing infrastructure to support this development. In accordance with its current funding approach, the capital expenditure necessary to service growth will be recovered by way of development contributions from those undertaking development.

Those costs council would ordinarily expect to incur (I.e cost of upgrading services external to the boundary, the purchase of local reserves, and the purchase of land required for stormwater attenuation) already form part of council’s development contributions policy and they will continue to be recovered in line with council’s current approach. I.e through a mix of district wide catchments (Roading) or localised catchments (Local Parks & Reserves or Stormwater Greenfields) from any development located within each catchment.

Those costs that would ordinarily be incurred by the landowner I.e those costs relating to the acquisition of the roading corridor and three waters services located within this corridor, are proposed to be recovered by way of a ‘ring-fenced’ development contribution, from those receiving the benefit of that infrastructure I.e those landowners developing within the Howard Street Development Area.

The proposed changes under the Amended 2019/20 Development Contributions Policy have been highlighted in red and can be located under Pages 2,11,15,19,31,47,55 and 63. These changes only affect those landowners within the Howard Street Development Area and those landowners will be directly consulted with as part of the special consultative process.

All other parts of the current 2019/20 Development Contributions Policy remain unchanged.
