The Otago Regional Council is signalling a 9.1 per cent average rates increase, citing climate change as one of the main reasons.

Council chair Marian Hobbs said the province was experiencing the affects of climate change and the council's work to adapt – as well as deal with natural hazards, flood protection and river management – was "more important than ever".

People will be able to submit feedback on the council's 2020-21 annual plan between March 26 and April 24, with hearings to be held from May 21 to 26.

A woman who parked on the footpath outside her Queenstown home was shocked to find a note on her car, telling her to "act like a Kiwi".

Prue, who did not want her surname used, found the handwritten message on the front window as she left for work on Saturday – her birthday. The car was parked on the footpath in front of a housing complex in Frankton because of a shortage of spaces for residents, she said.

"Stop parking on the footpath. Only an Asian woman would be so stupid. You live in New Zealand. Act like a Kiwi. We have children who use the footpath," the note read.
