Part C: ​Financial information

Fees and user charges

The 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:

New Food Act fees and fee structure have been incorporated through Public Health Regulations, with the introduction of the Food Act 2014, which passed into law in June 2014.

New fees will be implemented as of 1 July 2016 and are inclusive of GST. For more information see www.wellington.co.nz
