Have your say - Let's Talk Rates

Proposed changes to how we allocate rates

Public Notice
Description: This would mean the amount in annual rates you pay may change.
Some ratepayers may pay more and others may pay less
Closing Date: 14 October 2020 at 5:00pm

Gisborne District Council is proposing 5 changes to the way rates are allocated across the region to pay for some Council activities.

This would mean the amount in annual rates you pay may change.
Some ratepayers may pay more and others may pay less.

We’ve reviewed our rating system and the 3 major drivers for the proposed changes are:
• The ability to pay rates for some ratepayers.
• Road maintenance and who should pay.
• Infrastructure maintenance and who should pay.

We would like your feedback on the proposed changes.

You can check how the proposed changes would impact your property by using the online rates tool.
All the information including a Statement of Proposal is available here on our website, from Customer Service and the HB Williams Memorial Library.

Drop-in sessions and online meetings are also available. 

Feedback closes 5pm 14 Wednesday 14 October 2020.
