Rates

Decision

One rating system for the Auckland region and one rates bill covering Auckland-wide activities and local community activities.

Explanation

The new Auckland Council will move to a unified regional rating system as soon as possible.  It will levy a rate to fund:
  • activities which benefit the whole region
  • local services and activities required for local boards to carry out their particular functions.

Auckland Council will set and collect rates. It could also levy locally targeted rates (on request from a Local Board), which could fund further, specific investment in local amenities.

Before the new structure is set up, ratepayers will continue to pay rates to their local city or district council and to the Auckland Regional Council.
