    The annual plan talks about a rates increase. How can I find out how much more my rates will be after the increase??

    Robbie01 asked over 3 years ago

    Yes,  we have a web portal that allows people input there property valuation number or street address. The portal will then produce your current rates for 2016/17, proposed rates for 2017/18 and the proposed increase.

    The portal is: http://geo.rdc.govt.nz/BOPLASS/Tiny/RCOMPARE.aspx 

    Thanks.
