More than 15,000 properties could face a rates rise of at least 35 per cent under Auckland Council plans to boost revenue.

The biggest boost of $28 million would come from a higher rating on land zoned as residential, commercial or industrial which is either vacant or undeveloped.

Council officials estimated 15,500 homes could see their rates rise at least 35 per cent under the plan, with 1,400 business properties facing rises starting at 82 per cent.

The proposal is part of a range of potential tweaks, including a new rate to fund investments to tackle climate change and one to help affordable housing initiatives.

Please type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in our conversations section of the community paper.

Hi neighbours,

Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.

The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.

The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.

All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.

Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.

The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.
