North Shore City Council – Being clear on the rationale for work ensures that projects can be funded fairly

Development contributions are a major part of North Shore City Council’s planning. For example, its Wastewater Plan states: “Council will continue to collect development contributions to fund the identified growth related projects”. It then highlights “the importance of identifying project drivers to enable fair and well-substantiated calculation of development contributions”. Other plans have specific sections devoted to the topic.
