Property developers' arguments against increased Dunedin City Council charges will not be heard until November.
Development contributions hearings have been rescheduled for November 3, 4 and 7, in Dunedin's Municipal Chambers, after snow earlier this month caused their postponement.
Development contributions are charges paid by property developers to meet demands on infrastructure such as water and wastewater, roads and reserves.
Under proposed changes, developments placing additional demand on infrastructure could attract extra charges, up to $5944 for a new house in outlying parts of the city to $40,650 for one in West Taieri.
Developer Tom Richardson, who was behind the establishment of opposing group the Construction Industry and Developers Association, said yesterday the delay meant more time could be spent considering the matter.
