Proposed Development Contributions Policy

Whanganui District Council anticipates urban expansion and growth within the Springvale Urban and the Otamatea West areas of Whanganui and new developments will require significant investment in infrastructure.

The proposed development contribution policy will provide the Council with a clear framework for recovering contributions to help meet the costs of capital expenditure necessary to service growth.

This consultation is now closed.

The introduction of a development contributions policy will:

  • assist the Council with achieving greater accuracy in its planning for growth
  • provide clarity and certainty for developers; and
  • ensure contributions are fair, equitable and proportionate.
