Fees and Charges 2021-2022

Fees and charges have predominately increased by the rate of inflation of 2.2%, however some fees have had to increase further (all are under 10% variance so not considered significant) to recover actual costs.

Currently we receive 92% expected income from dog registration fees, a 7% increase to dog registration fees is proposed to recover the cost of providing this service. Please refer to page 29 of the document for more detail.

New harbour master fees are proposed to recover cost to provide harbour master and boat services.

Submission closed 5pm Friday 23 April.
