Estimate your contributions

The fees are based on the number of residential dwellings (equivalent household units - EHUs) involved in your project. The How we set Development Contributions charges document explains how we calculate these in more detail.

Our tip

There are no charges for water supply and wastewater infrastructure under this policy. The cost of this infrastructure is charged directly by Veolia Water (Papakura) or Watercare Services Limited (rest of Auckland).

How to use the development contributions estimator

After launching the contributions estimator, you will be prompted to enter the address or legal description of the property.

You will need to answer a number of questions and select the existing use of the property and type of the proposed development.
