Estimate your development contributions

Wondering how much your development contributions might cost? Use our new development contributions estimator to do the calculations for you. Simply type in some information about your plans and it will provide you with an estimate.

Use the tool to estimate the development contribution fee you'll need to pay if you're subdividing your land, or planning to build a home or other new building. You may need to know your land area or building area in square metres, depending on your location and plans.

Development contributions are paid on any land development or subdivision that generates extra demand on infrastructure. This reduces the burden on ratepayers and ensures our city’s infrastructure is fairly funded.

For more information about development contributions, including base fees, please see our Development Contributions Policy.
