Consultation on proposed changes to user fees and charges closed on Sunday 5 May.

Council provides a range of user pays services throughout the district. These include services like processing building or resource consents, environmental health, access to sport and recreation or community facilities, venue hire, use of jetties and moorings, and carparking.

These fees and charges allow Council to pass on some costs to those who use and directly benefit from these services and facilities, reducing the amount of funding that needs to be collected through rates.

Fees and charges are usually reviewed as part of the Long Term or Annual Plan process. In February 2024, Council agreed to defer the Long Term Plan 2024-2034 (LTP), following direction from the coalition government to include planning and funding for three waters service delivery for the full ten-year timeframe of an LTP. Council will consider adopting the LTP 2024-2034 on 19 September 2024. Community consultation is planned to occur from 27 June – 28 July 2024.

Many of our fees and charges must be reviewed and set ahead of the start of the government sector financial year, coming into effect on 1 July 2024. This means consultation must be completed ahead of the LTP process.
