Council has considered the project costs of kerb and channel construction, and has determined the following standard contribution charges for property owners in its Fees and Charges for 2020-2021:
- $136 per metre for residential and rural frontages
- $156 per metre for commercial, industrial and school frontages
This charge is less than 50 per cent of the total cost of kerb and channel construction, the limit allowable under the Roads Act. Residential property owners will only be charged up to 25 metres, even if their property frontage is longer. There are additional concessions and conditions, such as where the property has frontages on more than one street.
For dual or multiple occupancy properties, the charges will be split evenly between the owners
