The HAPAI building will be closed and our customer services team will be unavailable as we make the move back to the Civic Centre. We'll still be receiving phone calls through our call centre. We apologise for the inconvenience but look forward to welcoming customers back to the Civic Centre from Monday 2 October.

Upper Hutt has experienced considerable growth in recent years, and this is forecast to continue. We have several significant projects in our Long Term Plan to help cater for this growth.
Our Revenue and Financing Policy contemplates using development contributions to help meet the cost of this infrastructure. To date, we have made only limited use of development contributions for this purpose.
We’re now proposing to make more use of this funding tool by establishing a new Development and Financial Contributions Policy, effective from 1 July 2023.
Consultation will run from 20 April to 21 May, followed by hearings on 31 May. We’re also hosting a webinar on 3 May and a public drop in session on 12 May.
