Objects and Reason for Rates - 2019/20

Reason for difference in published rate-in-the-dollar

The rates in the dollar imposed for differential rates and minimum rates for 2019/20 have been amended from those as advertised through a local public notice published on 14 May 2019.

This is due to alterations to valuations supplied by the Valuer General as a result of the unimproved revaluation. 

Current year rate increase

The 2019/20 budget requires that the amount to be raised from Rates is $135 million.  To achieve this, the Rates-in-the-Dollar and Minimum Rates that have been proposed deliver an overall rate revenue increase of 1.78%, with an average increase of 1.8% for the Residential Improved category (which applies to 89% of Ratepayers).
