Part E: Supporting and financial information

Fees and user charges

Our Revenue and Financing Policy guides our decisions on how to fund Council services. Under the policy, we take into account who benefits from a service (individuals, parts of the community, or the community as a whole) to help us determine how the service should be funded. The policy set targets for each Council activity, determining what proportion should be funded from each of user charges, general rates, targeted rates and other sources of income.

In line with that policy, we have made some changes to fees and charges in the following areas:

Changes to fees are to be implemented as of 1 July 2018 and are inclusive of GST. With the exception of changes to parking fees which will be approved through Council's separate process for developing resolutions under the Traffic Bylaw. For more information see www.Wellington.govt.nz
