Regional Council rates
The Council collects rates on behalf of the Greater Wellington Regional Council. These rates are set by Greater Wellington.
At the beginning of each rating year you will receive two Rates Assessment Notices: one detailing Wellington City Council rates and the other detailing Greater Wellington rates. Your quarterly instalment invoices, however, are combined to reflect both councils' rates on one invoice.
In general, Greater Wellington rates fund the following regional services:
- emergency management
- environment sustainability
- flood protection
- regional transport (trains and buses)
- harbour safety
- land management
- regional parks and forests
- water supply to reservoirs
