Property and rates
Council provides a wide range of services that are paid for primarily by rates. These services and the level of service provided are agreed through consultation with the public when we're adopting the Long Term Plan and Annual Plans. If the community asks that a service changes then rates will change.
Rates are divided between all rateable properties and collected as a mix of uniform (standard) charges and variable charges based on either land value and/or the capital value of each property.
Rates will be collected by quarterly instalments and payments will be applied to the oldest debt first. Please click here to view instalment dates.
