Panoninga pire reiti mō tēnei tau

Saturday 1 July 2017 was the start of the 2017-2018 rating year.

Summary of main changes in property rates

The general rates increased by an average of 2.5 per cent, and the Uniform Annual General Charge increased from $394 to $404.

Annual budget

Every year we consult with the community on any changes we propose for the coming year.

This is your chance to have your say about how property rates should be spent in your community.

As part of the annual budget process, we agreed to:

  • pay for tourism promotion through a targeted rate on commercial accommodation providers
  • pay council staff a living wage
  • fund coordinated action on homelessness
  • progress the mass transit network
  • expand the boundaries of the Manukau, Uptown and Wiri business improvement districts
  • implement Skypath.

For a more detailed summary of the agreed Annual Budget outcomes, see annual budget 2017/2018.
