- As part of the Council's 10-year plan, a 3.8% rates budget increase is proposed for next year (2019/20).
- The Council is currently transitioning from land value to capital value rating. Rates from 1 July 2019 will be set using a combination of your property's capital value and land value, therefore your proportion of land to capital value will also have an impact.
- On 1 July 2018, the Council introduced a Uniform Annual General Charge (UAGC). The UAGC is a fixed portion of the general rate, charged to all ratepayers in the same way. The general rate is made up of a combination of this fixed charge plus the capital value rate. As part of the 10-year plan, the UAGC is to transition to a higher level over three years.
We will be doing further work once the revaluation process is complete and will have rates estimates available early next year.
