We’re making changes to rates

In August 2022 we started collecting our rates ourselves. Since the Regional Council was established in 1989,  the seven district and city councils across the region have been doing this for us. We’re making changes so that you can get to know the work your rates help fund.

You can find out more about rates, including your rates for this financial year, what your rates pay for, and how to sign up to receive your rates by email by clicking the links below.
