Environment Canterbury's 8.9 per cent total rates rise in draft plan

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

It's not as "grim" as it sounds, Environment Canterbury (ECan) says about its proposed 8.9 per cent total rates rise for the 2019-20 year.

On Thursday afternoon the ECan council approved its draft annual plan, which, after consultation and changes, has to be adopted by July 1.

If the proposed rise goes ahead unchanged, that will amount to another $25 a year on the rates bill for the owners of a $570,000 property in Christchurch, an extra $152 a year on a $5.1 million rural property in the Waimakariri district and about $13 a year on a $250,000 house in Waimate.
