Financial Contributions

Council, under its revenue and Financing Policy, levies Financial Contributions. There contributions are levied for water, sewer and stormwater and are paid when new sections or multi-unit residential developments are created.

The formula used to calculate the contributions is:

V - L
R

Where:

  • V - Latest independent valuation of the water supply/sewerage system/stormwater system plus the value of any capital additions made since that time and less the value of depreciation charged since the date of revaluation.
  • L - Capital reserve balance with water supply/sewerage system/stormwater system as at 1 July each year. (The reserve may be in funds or overdrawn resulting in a positive or negative balance.)
  • R - Number of connectable properties (or properties for stormwater) contributing to the assets as at 1 July each year.
