Draft Fees & Charges 2020/21 [PDF, 776 KB]

Fees and charges have predominately increased by the rate of inflation of 2.3%, however some fees have had to increase further to recover actual costs. The fees and charges support the estimated income levels included in the 2018–2028 Long Term Plan.

The proposed charges reflect the true costs of each individual service, to ensure the person benefiting from the service is charged accurately rather than costs falling on the general ratepayer. The proposed changes to fees include:

• Staff time hourly charge out rates increase between 3%-10%. 
• Corridor Access Requests fees increase to $159 per hour. 
• Harbourmaster vessels requiring a pilot entering Gisborne harbour limits, changes to fees and process. 
• Animal Control impounding fee increase and penalties to incentivise responsible animal ownership behaviour. 
• Fee to hold a wedding on a reserve increases from $26 to $100. 
• Trade waste discharge fee per cubic metre increases to $0.48.

Stormwater, wastewater and water hourly charge out rates and CCTV camera hire increases 6%-27%.
