There are currently five engagement and/or consultation processes underway, including Rates Remission and Postponemnet on Māori Freehold Land, Public Places Bylaw, Tokoroa commerical and industrial growth, Tokoroa residential and Tirau residential and business.
Below is also our Annual Plan Information Document. The rates revenue increase of 7.6% adopted for the 2022-23 year, during the Long Term Process last year, has not changed, so we are not consulting on our Annual Plan. However it's been a year with huge progress so we wanted to update on you on various projects. This documnet is For Your Information only.
Rates Remission and Postponement on Māori Freehold Land Policy
This Policy has been amended to reflect changes to Government legislation that introduces a statutory rates remission process for Māori Freehold Land under development. This change is to support regional growth by encouraging the development of under-utilised Māori Freehold Land.
