Financial Policies

Feedback closed 5pm Tuesday 6 April

Alongside the Long-Term Plan (LTP) 2021-2031 consultation, New Plymouth District Council (the Council) is also consulting on three financial policies that support the LTP 2021-2031. You can have your say on these policies: 

  1. Revenue and Financing Policy. This policy sets out the high level approach for how the Council will fund each activity, as well as the general approach for the Council’s rating system including rating differentials, targeted rates and uniform annual general charges. 
  2. Rates Remission and Postponement Policies. This policy sets out when the Council will reduce rates or delay when they are due by, on a case by case basis. 
  3. Development and Financial Contributions Policy. This policy sets out how developers will help contribute towards the funding of new or upgraded infrastructure.
