Fees and user charges

Ngā utu kaiwhakamahi

Our Revenue and Financing Policy guides our decisions on how to fund Council services. Under the policy, we take into account who benefits from a service (individuals, parts of the community, or the community as a whole) because this helps us determine how the service should be funded. The policy sets targets for each Council activity, determining what proportion should be funded from the user charges, general rates, targeted rates and other sources of income.

Because of the unusual circumstances arising from the COVID-19 pandemic only a limited number of increases are being made to fees and charges this year, as we want to ensure we are doing all we can to help the residents and businesses to recover. We will fund this shortfall through borrowing. This isn’t sustainable in the long-term, so there are likely to be larger fee increases in the 2021/22 year.

The areas where there will be some changes to fees and charges are:

  • 2.2.1 Waste minimisation, disposal and recycling management.
  • 5.1.7 Marinas.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Thank you for the interest in our plans for 2020/21

Do you have any questions about our changes to fees and user charges for 2020/21? Post below and the team will get back to you as soon as practicable.

    Why not charging individuals by weight of their rubbish? Maybe people will then be more reponsible and maybe try to be on a zero waste journey. When will plastic bottles ban? There should not be any products availablt if NZ can't recycle them. Have compost bins in the city so take away cups which are commercially compostable don't end up in landfill? Have collective compost picks up?

    Thank you for your thoughts

    Are there going to be any changes to the fees and charges at Makara Cemetery

    Alec asked over 1 year ago

    Kia ora Alec, 

    It is proposed that there are no changes to fees and user charges this year, except in the marina and waste areas. This is what has been recommended to Council to finalise on 21 July (tomorrow). 

    However, we are currently reviewing our Cemeteries Management Plan. This is very early stages of gathering information about how people use the cemeteries and what they are hoping for in the future in order to draft the revised plan. You can find more information on that here

    Do you plan to increase fees for access to the Aquatic Centre in Kilbirnie?

    Aine Meek asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for the question Aine. This year we are not proposing to increase any of our fees, except for the landfill and marina ones detailed on this page.
    So this means no increase for our pools.
