Developer contributions

Developer contributions

Developer contributions are set on a case by case basis based on estimated efficient costs for the new investment.


Extensions occur where existing mains are lengthened or altered to supply existing or new properties that are not currently serviced.

A typical example of this is an approach main external to the development boundary of a new development area.  

Where a proposed extension provides an additional benefit to other customers, we contribute 50% of the material costs for the extension. The 50% material cost contribution will only include pipe and fittings.

If we require pipework to be up-sized to support future growth, we will pay the full materials cost of the difference between your minimum needs and the extra work we require.

Extension fees are based on the estimated cost to deliver the service.

For more information you can read our Developer Contribution: Materials fact sheet and our Developer Charges Major Development Form.


Connections occur where a new property is added and a new connection to an existing water or sewerage main is required.

A typical example of this is a new connection for a property sub-division.
