Development Contributions are levies on new developments. They are collected under the Local Government Act 2002 and are there to ensure that the extra demand on council infrastructure from new developments being built is paid for by the new user and is not imposed on the existing community.

Development Contributions are assessed on the extent at which the new development generates additional demand on roading, transport, stormwater, and parks and reserves.
