Financial Contribution Policy

As part of its Draft Long Term Plan (LTP) 2015-2025 Horowhenua District Council consulted on whether to cancel, suspend, moderate, harmonise or retain its Development Contributions Policy in the form that was adopted in 2012.

Following the submissions process for the Draft LTP 2015-2025, Council decided to cancel its Development Contributions Policy and to no longer charge Development Contributions. Instead the Council elected to adopt a Financial Contributions Policy which would enable it to charge Financial Contributions on developments in growth areas that require resource consent.

This Policy requires a District Plan Change to be completed before the Policy can be implemented. Due to recent changes to the Resource Management Act Council has not yet proceeded with the plan change.
