Rates Remission Policy Amendment
Consultation for the Rates Remission Policy Amendment has now closed.
Rangitīkei District Council is consulting on a Rates Remission Policy Amendment.
The Rates Remission Policy was reviewed and adopted on 9 June 2022.
One of the changes made was the removal of the category “contiguous rating units owned or leased by a single ratepayer”. Contiguous units are adjacent or touching properties that share a common boundary or wall.
This removal was based on the understanding that these remissions were already covered under the Local Government (Rating) Act 2022. However, this legislation refers to two or more rating units being owned by the same person, while the previous policy also covered rates for contiguous units leased by the same person. Council’s intention was to continue providing these remissions to contiguous units, both leased or owned by a single ratepayer, so is proposing to reinstate the removed section to ensure all affected ratepayers are covered
Submissions on the Draft Rates Remission Policy Amendment may be made before 5pm Tuesday 25 April 2023.
You can make a submission online or print a copy and post it to Marton Office, 46 High Street, Marton, 4741.
