Council has developed four options to consider in applying the general rates that it needs to collect to deliver services. This takes on board community feedback from 2023/24 on the impact of general rate increases on pensioners and the ongoing cost of living pressures. A final determination on a preferred option will be made at the June 2024 Council meeting. Council is seeking feedback prior to determining a preferred option. The various options are also intended to mitigate capacity to pay concerns, and address key recomendations from the Independent Review into The Advantages and Disadvantages of Amalgamation and Federation Council's Financial Sustainability Journey Report.

Below is an example of a standard rates notice, highlighted in red shows the land valuation, which is needed to use the estimator, please reference this value on your rates notice.
