If your subdivision creates additional allotments you’ll also have to pay:
- 'Financial contributions' if your subdivision creates additional allotments. These contributions generally acknowledge the additional demand placed on our facilities and services. They are one-off payments that are separate from rates. You can read more detail about them in Chapter 12 of the District Plan
- An engineering fee based on a percentage of the construction costs of any new access or Council service. The percentage ranges from 3.43% for one new lot created to 0.7% for more than 40. Additional charges on an hourly rate basis may apply.
- A 'reserves contribution fee', which is between 5.5% and 7.5% of the value (provided by an independent valuer) of each additional allotment. The fee is capped at $10,000 per lot for residential subdivisions and $5,000 per lot for rural subdivisions. It's determined by taking into account the reserves available in the area, the amount of open space proposed within your development and the proposed vegetation protection as part of the subdivision
