The project is being funded through the Infrastructure Funding and Financing Act 2020, and recouped through increased levies on ratepayers
Wellington City Council gained approval to raise up to $400 million to finance the construction of the facility through the Infrastructure Funding and Financing Act 2020. The finance will be raised by a special purpose vehicle (SPV) owned by Crown Infrastructure Partners. The finance raised by the SPV will be repaid through a levy on all properties, with properties directly connected to the facility paying a higher levy.
The levy will start being charged in 2024 and is intended to be charged for 30 years, spreading the costs over the life of the new facility.
