Council provides services related to estimates of development contribution charges and objections to development contribution assessments.
The Council adopted its Long Term Plan 2021–31 on 23 June 2021 and changes to fees and charges for some Council-run services and facilities are being implemented in stages over the coming months.
These fee changes were signalled earlier this year when the Council went out for public consultation on its Long Term Plan 2021–31 – its budget for the next 10 years.
Please note, development contribution charges are detailed in the Council's Development Contributions Policy.
Estimates of development contributions where no building consent, resource consent, subdivision consent or service connection has been applied for.
Fees and charges for development contribution estimates are set under section 12 of the Local Government Act 2002.

The time taken to process an objection is charged at the relevant scheduled hourly rate, plus the actual cost of the commissioner(s) and disbursements.
Time is charged at the hourly rate applicable at the time the work was carried out.
If the cost of processing exceeds the Deposit the Objector will be invoiced for the additional fees. Alternatively, the balance of the deposit will be refunded if the processing charge is less than the deposit.

Where the Council has issued an invoice for the payment of any fee or charge and the amount invoiced has not been paid by the stated due date on the invoice, the Council may commence debt recovery action.
The Council reserves the right to charge interest, payable from the date the debt became due, and recover costs incurred in pursuing recovery of the debt on a solicitor/client basis as outlined in the fees and charges schedule of the Council's Long Term Plan.
