Buller District Council is proposing changes to the way rates are calculated.

During 2014 Buller District Council went out to the ratepayers and asked “does the current rating system work?”, “is it fair?” and “is there a better way of doing it?”

The response was overwhelming.  After that round of consultation it was determined that the community do believe another system of calculating rates could be used, but it was felt that the solution wasn’t one of the options that Council proposed at that time.

Council has listened to the feedback from the first round of consultation and has a proposal that feels is appropriate for all ratepayers in Buller.  We now present this option and seek feedback through our consultation process.
