Consultation for proposed changes to Revenue & Financing Policy

The draft Revenue and Finance Policy contains new proposals to ensure there is equity and consistency in how rates are charged.

Revenue & Financing Statement of Proposal 

We are currently consulting on several policies that affect your rates.

The draft Revenue and Financing Policy contains new proposals to ensure there is equity and consistency in how rates are charged. If our proposals are adopted, most ratepayers will see a small decrease in their rates, but some will see an increase.

There would not be an increase in the total amount of rates that NCC collects. Rather, the proposed changes would alter how much each individual property pays. Our proposals reflect changes that have taken place over time as Napier has developed. The proposals are not related to Council’s annual consideration of across-the-board rates increases.

Use our rates calculator to compare your current rates calculation with how it might look if our proposals are adopted.

Alongside the Revenue and Financing Policy consultation, we are also consulting on amendments to other policies that are affected by those proposed changes. These policies are:

Revenue and Financing Policy

Rating Policy

Rates Remission Policy

Rates Postponement Policy

New community meeting times

The community meetings about the consultation had to be postponed due to Napier’s state of emergency, which became Mayor Wise’s immediate priority. We are committed to holding these meetings with the community, and can now confirm that they will be held on:

Wednesday 18 November, 11am - 12pm and 6pm - 7pm at the Chapman Pavilion Pettigrew Lounge 1 at McLean Park.

The consultation has now been extended to 5pm, Wednesday 2 December, to give you more time to have your say. Navigate the Revenue & Financing Statement of Proposal by using the contents tool located on the right-hand side of each page. Read and review the proposal and tell us what you think, by clicking on the link below by 2 December 2020.
