Draft Contributions Policy

 

Resolution number FR/2018/174

MOVED by Member N Kloeten, seconded by Member B Crompton:  

That the Franklin Local Board:

a)      resolves feedback on the Contributions Policy 2019 as follows:

i)         extending the timeframe for the payment of contributions on residential development is supported, as it will better align with the lead in time between consent and sale of housing.

ii)       targeted rates should be considered rather than further increasing developer contributions for residential sites, because it is considered that frontloading the contributions will simply push up the cost of the housing and make it less affordable.

iii)      any reserve land vested as part of a development agreement needs to be of a size and form that is suitable for community use.

iv)      a consistent approach needs to be agreed with Waikato District Council, to acknowledge the use of community infrastructure in Franklin by the residents of growing communities in north Waikato.

v)       utilisation of the grants process for Maori development is favoured over remissions, based on merit, and on a case-by-case basis.

b)      supports the recommended changes to the Proposed Regional Pest Management Plan.
