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.

This week has been exciting as The Salvation Army launched 'The Good Shop', a roving truck aimed at reforming the damaging effects of problem debt and fringe lending in low socio-economic areas across New Zealand by providing an ethical shopping alternative.

"Every day we see people trapped in a cycle of debt by these loans, with no other options open to them and often with limited economic understanding. The Good Shop will positively disrupt the current mobile trading business model that can have extortionately high-interest rates and repayment plans that exploit our people,” The Good Shop Project Manager Jodi Hoare says.
