Auckland Mayoral proposal eases ratepayer burden and support work with Auckland’s homeless

Nov 29, 2016 | News

The proposed consultation items include restricting the annual average rate rise to 2.5% and addressing Auckland’s need for extra revenue to support growth with the proposed introduction of a visitor levy, a targeted rate for new large-scale developments and a regional fuel tax.

“Ratepayers have shouldered the responsibility for the growth of our city and cannot be expected to continue to do that on their own. This proposal shares that responsibility more fairly across all of those who benefit from living and doing business in our city,” says Phil Goff

The Mayoral proposal delivers on Phil Goff’s commitment to restrict rate rises.

“I made a commitment to restrict the annual average rate rise to 2.5%, down from 3.5%, and that is what this proposal delivers.”

The proposal also implements the Mayor’s commitment to a Living Wage for Council employees and contributes an additional $500,000 to co-ordinating work to support homeless Aucklanders.
