Let's Talk Rates

Me Kōrero Rēti Tātau

We propose to change the way we allocate rates across Tairāwhiti to pay for some Council activities.

These proposed changes would reduce the rates by a small amount for many residential properties in the city but will increase the rates by a larger amount for multi-unit rating units such as retirement villages.

The rates for pastoral and horticultural farms would increase by a small amount and for land used as forestry by a large amount.

We would not collect any more money from these changes if the proposals are adopted.  The changes reallocate the amount each group of ratepayers pays.
