Every year Kaipara District Council reviews its fees and charges. Fees and charges are used to support the operation and maintenance of a variety of services provided to the community. They are set on a user-pays basis to ensure that rate increases are kept to a minimum where possible.
This year a 7.2 percent increase has been incorporated to many fees to account for current inflation, in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Other fees have changed or decreased in response to customer feedback to reflect a better customer experience.
Read the Statement of Proposal showing the changes between the current Fees & Charges and the proposed Fees & Charges for 2022/2023.
The feedback period was open for one month, 12 April – 12 May 2023. Feedback has now closed.
The final Fees & Charges for 2023/2024 will then be taken to the May Council meeting for approval, with Fees & Charges then set for the coming year, following the Council decision. Note that there a number of Fees & Charges are set by statute and do not go through consultation.
