DEVELOPMENT SERVICING CHARGES & RECOMMENDED SERVICE CONNECTION FEES

With the introduction of a Development Servicing Plan, Connection Fees have two basic components - a Development Servicing Charge (a contribution towards infrastructure based on the potential increase in demand on the system), and a
Service Connection Fee (the (averaged) cost of physically installing the connection and meter). Land developers are also required to meet the reticulation costs.

RURAL DEVELOPMENT SERVICING CHARGES


NOTE: These charges are in addition to the applicable service connection fee The Development Servicing Charge for rural connections is based on E.T.'s determined from service size. The following charges relate to properties greater than 2000m2. For smaller rural properties divide the listed charge by 1.2

RURAL LOCATION TAX PRICE PER SERVICE CONNECTION
20mm 25mm 32mm *40mm *50mm
$ $ $ $ $
RURAL PIPELINES ** N 5760 5760 9437 14,745 23040
ADDITIONAL COSTS    
* The availability of a service connection greater than 25mm diameter is dependent on the capacity to supply within the reticulation network and must have engineering approval.
 * * If a tapping direct to Goldenfields Water County Council large diameter main is required, the customer must arrange this with GWCC. They will be a GWCC customer.
Note: Due to limitations of existing reticulation a capital contribution towards upgrading may also be required for some rural connections, calculated on an individual basis.

COMMERCIAL OR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT SERVICING CHARGES

NOTE: These charges are in addition to the applicable service connection fee.

Development Servicing Charges for Industrial or Commercial developments are based on a charge of $4800 per E.T. (Equivalent Tenement).

For Industrial Development, E.T.'s will be calculated by one of the following 2 methods - whichever gives the Higher E.T.

Method 1: Use the Water Directorate Guidelines and multiply the recommended E.T. value by a factor of 0.7.

Method 2: Where the Water Directorate Guidelines are silent about the particular type of development, calculate the E.T. by dividing the assessed peak days demand by 3.8 kilolitres. Eg. a peak days demand of 19 kilolitres = 5 E.T.

NOTE: At the time of subdivision, if no developmenmt type is specified (such as light industrial) the Developer Servicing Charge will be based on 1 E.T. per lot.  The charges will then be re-assessed when the owenr makes applicationfor connection to the water supply.

For Commercial Development, E.T.'s will be calculated according to the Water Directorate Guidelines, in particular Table 2, and by multiplying the recommended E.T. Value by a factor of 0.7.6

NOTE:
1. At the time of requesting a service connection, the applicable E.T.'s will be recalculated and credit will be given for any previously paid E.T.'s.
2. Notwithstanding all of the above, there will be a minimum Development Servicing Charge or $4800 per Lot, AND the following minimum development servicing charges will apply to each service connection, based on service connection size.

SERVICE SIZE TAX <80mm 80mm
