Rates increase for 2022

August rates notices have been posted/emailed to all ratepayers.

You may notice a difference in your rates bill, as the rates increase for 2022/23 was effective from 1 July (i.e. this is the first time you will see the rates increase we told the community about in May/June this year). 

Our Annual Plan included some small changes to projects, and significant increases in inflation - but we also also made cut backs where we can. Check out the summaries below for more information on what we're planning for the year ahead and how it might affect you. You can also view the Annual Plan in full on the Annual Plan page.
