Thank you for your interest in our Napier City Council Revenue and Financing Policy consultation.

The consultation closes on the 15th of November 2020 at 12noon.

Most questions require only a rating to be selected; this survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. 

The last major review of our rating system took place in 2002. We have recently reviewed our policies and believe that the way activities are funded and rated no longer reflects Napier’s current residential, commercial and rural zones.

We are reviewing an important foundation policy – the Revenue and Financing Policy and Council’s rating policies. Our proposed changes aim to achieve greater consistency between ratepayers – by making sure that similar properties pay similar rates.

The Statement of Proposal is about proposed amendments to the Revenue & Financing Policy, Rating Policy, Rates Remission Policy and Rates Postponement Policy. 

The proposed amendments will change how we calculate rates and will change the rates assessed on each individual property. 

For more  information, please refer to the Statement of Proposal and the summary of changes (or visit Council’s website at
