1.2     Background Summary

On 28 June 2017 Council adopted the Annual Plan for 2017/18, which sets out Council’s rating system to apply from 1 July 2017 and determines the level of rates revenue required for the 2017/18 year.

 

The plan provides for an overall increase in rates revenue of 5.1%; however, the impact on existing ratepayers is an average increase of 4.9% after allowing for growth in the rating base for 2017/18.

 

Under Section 23 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, Council is required to pass a formal resolution to set rates in accordance with its adopted Plan for the 2017/18 financial year.
