We’re undergoing a significant transformation programme – replacing aging infrastructure, preparing for population growth, earthquake-strengthening our buildings, and responding to the climate and ecological emergency.

At the same time, the Council is facing major cost pressures, including increased inflation, borrowing and insurance costs.

This year’s budget includes a proposed rates increase of 12.3% after growth (the increase in the number of ratepayers) – an average of about $8.00 per household per week.

Visit to find out more and let us know what you think.

Printed copies of the engagement document and submission form will also be available at our libraries from 30 March.
