Annual Plan 2019/20 and Revenue & Financing Policy Consultations

Thanks for your interest. The consultation on the Annual Plan 2019/20 and Revenue & Financing Policy has concluded.

In June 2018, we adopted the Long Term Plan 2018–28 (LTP 18-28) for the Wellington region, which charts a course for the next decade to keep our extraordinary region thriving, connected, and resilient.

We're currently planning for the 2019/20 financial year, which will see us delivering Year 2 of the LTP 18-28.

We’re not planning any significant changes to our work programme for 2019/20, and we're keeping the average rates rise at 5.9% as forecasted in the LTP 2018-28. We're on track to do the things we said we’d do.

However, we are proposing to change the way rates are allocated for 2019/20. To ensure that rates are fair across the region for all property types, we’re proposing a differential on the general rate within Wellington City.

This means we're consulting on both our Annual Plan 2019/20 and our draft Revenue & Financing Policy concurrently. The submission form allows you to submit on both consultations.

Formal consultation is now open and will close 5pm 24 May.
