LGNZ Excellence AwardWelcome to the Rangitikei District Council

The Rangitikei District comprises 4,500 square kilometres of mainly lush, rural land. It is a diverse district, ranging from the sand plains on the south coast - which stretch inland almost as far as Bulls - to the magnificent hill country of the upper Rangitikei. 

Proposed Amendment to Rates Remission Policy

E-mail Print PDF

Council is concerned that the result of government legislation on earthquake-prone buildings will be to condemn many of the District’s commercial buildings to a declining occupancy and abandonment.

Council believes that providing short-term remission of rates, together with a waiver of at least part of the building/resource consent costs involved, will provide an incentive to owners of such buildings, in addition to the opportunities they see in developing their businesses.

Council is interested in knowing the community’s views on this proposal and invites written submissions on this policy. If you want to make a submission please get it back to one of the locations below by 12 pm (noon) Friday 12 September 2014.

Alternatively you may lodge a submission electronically at www.rangitikei.govt.nz.

The hearing of submissions will be held on 2 October 2014, in the Council Chambers at the Marton Office, 46 High Street, Marton.

A Summary of Information and submission form can be obtained from the locations listed below, by request on 0800 422 522, or by downloading from here.
