Fees and charges 2023/24


Our Fees and Charges cover everything from swimming pool entry fees to resource and building consent fees and everything in between. We review them every year to ensure they are kept up to date and reflect actual and reasonable costs and to make sure additional processes and new costs are fully covered.


What is being proposed

The majority of the proposed Fees and Charges for 2023/24 are proposed to remain the same or increase by inflation. 

Some of the other changes include:

  • proposing to remove all overdue fines at our libraries
  • charging for rubbish collection through rates instead of rubbish bag sales, with rubbish bags only sold through to 31 August 2023.  
  • changing how we charge for meeting/function spaces at Council venues, lifting the daily limits on these spaces help recover some of the actual cost of operating these venues
  • increasing the costs for LIM reports to help recover actual costs.
  • adding some new Building Consent and Resource Consent fees
