Delete existing section 2.6 and insert replacement section 2.6 as follows:

2.6 Remission and postponement

The Council may grant a remission on development contributions at its complete discretion.

Applications made under this part will be considered on their own merits and any previous decisions of the Council will not be regarded as creating precedent or expectations.

To encourage economic development and recognise the strategic importance of green star rated buildings a standard remission equating to 50 percent of the total standard assessed levy can be applied for developments that meet the criteria outlined below.

Conditions and criteria for 50 percent Remission to standard assessment of development contributions levies are:

i. If the building is a commercial or mixed development of greater than 10 equivalent household units it must have received a 5 Star Green Star Certified Rating or higher
ii. the remission must be applied for within 12 months of the Development Contributions being assessed by Council.
iii. the remission will only apply to the standard DC assessment (hereinafter referred to as “the levy”) made on the property.
iv. ​the remission will not be available retrospectively once the Council has invoiced the Development Contributions levy.

Insert the following paragraph into section 3 ‘Assessment and Payment’:

Liability should construction not commence within two years

Should construction of a development not commence within two years of being granted building consent, the remission of charges and fees provided under this policy shall no longer apply. At that stage, all fees and charges will be fully payable for the development as per the standard policy. Commencement of construction will be deemed to have occurred when the activity for which a resource and building consent has been issued, has commenced.

Add the text underlined to clause 3.3.2:

Security

The Council may register any development contributions under the Statutory Land Charges Registration Act 1928 as a charge on the title of the land in respect of which the development contributions were required, as provided for in section 208 of the Local Government Act 2002 or it may require other appropriate security as agreed with the developer.

Community Infrastructure

    Delete all references and levies relating to ‘community infrastructure’ from the Development Contributions policy.

    Reserves Contributions

      Delete all references and levies relating to non-residential ‘reserves’ from the Development Contributions policy.

      Delete clause 3.2.9 and replace it with the following:

        3.2.9 Payment

        All development contributions required by the Council must be paid prior to the Council issuing a code of compliance certificate, a section 224(c) certificate, a consent for a service connection or giving effect to a land use consent (as the case may be), unless a payment delay application has been approved by the Council. Where delay applications will considered by Council where:

        Any successful application for delayed payment expires after two years after the code of compliance certificate has been issued or upon sale of any part of the development, whichever occurs first.

        Consequential amendments

        Consequentially amend all other related clauses in the policy to give effect to the changes above.
