Updating our Financial Contributions Policy 

The Financial Contributions Policy sets out the contributions required from property developers to help fund the cost of services and new infrastructure in Napier. Contributions are also used to help avoid, remedy, or mitigate effects from subdivision and land development. We are proposing the following changes to the policy:

  • Wording changes to provide more clarity in relation to the applicability of the discounts offered within the policy.
  • Changes to align the language used with the wording in the proposed District Plan.
  • Wording changes to clarify how the policy is implemented in relation to the timing and payment of financial contributions.
  • Indexing of Financial Contribution charges.

You can read the draft proposed policy here, or view a copy at our customer service centre, 215 Hastings Street or Napier or Taradale Library. A printable version of this information can be downloaded here. Please make your submission online below.

Take a look at the proposed options, and let us know what you think by completing the submission form below before 5pm, Friday 26 April.

Option 1: Update the Financial Contributions Policy

Under this option, the proposed changes would be reflected in the policy. This would clarify the applicability of discounts, as well as the timing and payment of financial contributions. It would also ensure the wording used in the policy is consistent with the language used in the proposed District Plan.

Option 2: Status quo: no change

Under this option, the policy would remain as it is.
