Each year, all councils are required to set out their plans, service levels and budgets for the coming year.

Our 2016/2017 Annual Budget covers the second year of the current Long-term Plan, and contains $1.2 billion of investment in new assets, as well as $3.7 billion to pay for the day-today services the council provides.

The budget will also set the level of rates for 2016/2017.

This year’s Annual Budget consultation focused on some key rating issues we wanted your feedback on. They were:

  • The Uniform Annual General Charge
  • The Interim Transport Levy
  • Maori land rates
  • Farm and lifestyle rates

We also asked for your feedback on the local board priorities for your local area.

Thank you for having your say. This consultation closed at 4pm, 24 March 2016 and we are now reviewing all feedback.
