Development Contribution Policy 2018

Consultation on Proposed Amendments to QLDC Policy on Development Contributions

In accordance with the Local Government Act 2002, notice is hereby given that the Council has begun consultation on amendments to the Policy on Development Contributions for 2018/19.

QLDC Development Contributions and Financial Contributions Policy 2018 [456 KB]


The main reason for the amendment is to update contribution levels as a result of the incorporation of the latest actual expenditure and the revised capital programme proposed by the Long Term Plan 2018/28. As well as the annual update of contribution levels, the additional proposed amendments are intended to simplify and clarify certain areas of the policy; some of which have not been amended since the policy was first introduced.  Many of the proposed changes involve the introduction of clearer definitions and simpler assessment methodologies as well as extension of contributing areas to include new development areas.

These amendments are outlined in the Statement of Proposal, available here:
