2016/2017 Annual Plan
Western Bay of Plenty District Council adopted its 2016/2017 Annual Plan on 29 June 2016 and struck a rates increase of 1.68 percent for existing ratepayers.
The total rates increase is 2.95 percent, of which growth makes up 1.24 percent. This is the lowest rate increase in more than 10 years and doesn't come at a cost to service delivery.
The Annual Plan sets out the work Council intends to do over the next 12 months, why it is doing the work and what it will cost. The plan reflects feedback from ratepayers during community engagement in March and April.
