Changes to fees and user charges

Many of our services are paid for through a combination of rates and user charges. If the costs of delivering these services rise, the increase will be covered by all ratepayers, through rates, and by users of the services, through an increase in fees/user charges. Our fees are set in accordance with our Revenue and Finance Policy, and depend on a range of factors including who benefits from the activity.

In line with that policy, we’re proposing some changes to fees and charges in the following areas:

  • 2.2.1 Waste minimisation, disposal and recycling management
  • 2.4.1 Sewage collection and disposal network
  • 5.1.1 Swimming pools
  • 5.1.2 Sportsfields
  • 5.1.7 Marinas
  • 5.2.6 Community centres and halls
  • 5.3.1 Burials and cremations
  • 5.3.3 Public health
  • 7.2.1 Parking

In addition to the proposed fee changes, we are also proposing to remove the existing 50 percent discount on alfresco dining licences at cafes and bars, in parks and on the waterfront, where cafes do not make these spaces smoke-free. The 100 percent discount on smoke-free alfresco dining spaces will remain.

Parking changes are also discussed in the transport section.
