Rates review

The rates review project has been an ongoing workstream for nine-years, without resolution.

The aim of the rates policy review is to simplify the current system so that the system has fewer differentials (disparities between areas/properties) and is more straightforward to administer.

What’s next?

A review of rates in Buller is currently being undertaken.

Council will engage in the rates review, consider different rating system options and decide on how rates are calculated.

If the recalculation indicates a significant change to how much rates are charged to each ratepayer, Council will seek feedback from the community on the proposed rating system through a formal consultation process.
