So what has happened to the numbers?

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.

2020/21 impact

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.

 

Looking Ahead 2021/22

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.

The impacts per year are as follows:

Cost of servicing additional loans

Changes to water projects  +0.6%

 

WMMP impacts 

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.

  • Many residential properties have a slightly higher percentage increase due to the introduction of the new kerbside rubbish collection service.
