The financial planning, work programme and service delivery associated with the Annual Plan may be subject to some change, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the Long Term Plan 2018-28, we approved a cap for rates increases of 5% plus LGCI (Local Government Cost Index). The proposed average rates increase is 4.8% for 2020/21 – this falls within the cap.
Due to the changes in 2020/21 for water supply projects and implementing the kerbside waste collection, there is a possible 2.6% increase on rates for 2021/22.
We plan to phase in the costs of the new rubbish collection over two years. We started phasing the cost of the new recycling service last year with the second year being 2020/21.
|Changes to water projects||+0.6%|
|Final year impact of phasing in kerbside recycling||+1.2%|
|Impact of phasing in kerbside waste collection||+0.8|
The impact that these 2020/21 changes have on rates for 2021/22 will be considered in the development of the 2021/22 budget.
