Rates impact on rating groups

The decisions made, as outlined above, see average rates increases for Year 1 of the Long-term Plan (Year 1 is the 2024/25 financial year which starts 1 July 2024) increase across the four main rating groups, compared to what was consulted on.

  • The average increase for the business rating group will be 11.72% (up from 11.10% consulted on).
  • The average increase for farming increases will be 9.17% (up from 8.42% consulted on).
  • The average increase for residential rural will be 9.58% (up from 8.24% consulted on).
  • The average increase for residential urban will be 11.94% (up from 10.46 consulted on).

Important note regarding revaluations

Revaluations have only recently been confirmed and have not been applied to the above rates increases that have been modelled for the Long-term Plan. Revaluations have also not been applied to the rates calculator that was made available on Council’s website as part of Long-term Plan consultation.

The rating information database will be updated with the revaluations once the rates for Year 1 of the Long-term Plan have been struck – this is expected to happen on 26 June after Council adopts the finalised Long-term Plan.
