Subject: Invitation to Rates Review hui at Horowhenua District Council

Good afternoon,

We would like to invite you and your members to Horowhenua District Council’s Rates Review hui on Wednesday 29 May at 7:30 pm, at Council’s Civic Building in Levin.

You might remember that last year Council promised to do a Rates Review.  We’re doing that now and would like to discuss that with you.  This is being done as part of a combined Long Term Plan Amendment and Annual Plan process.

Council will be presented with the draft Consultation Document and supporting information to consider adopting on Wednesday 22 May. If adopted, consultation will begin on Monday 27 May 2023.  This sets out the options we’d like feedback on.

The Rates Review is one of the key issues. The purpose of the rates review is to determine if our current system for distributing rates across the district is fair.

Council would like to invite you to the hui we are holding in Council Chambers, Civic Building, 126 Oxford St, Levin.

This is an open meeting but we are specifically inviting iwi, hapu, ratepayers and progressive associations, Grey Power and Federated Farmers to this meeting because of your interest in these issues and to provide you and your members an early opportunity to hear from Elected Members and staff about options proposed, why, and to ask questions as the consultation period starts.  We will hold a range of further events and opportunities for discussion throughout the consultation period, and we’d welcome any further questions from yourselves and others.

I appreciate there’ll be a lot of calls on your time and hope you’ll be able to attend.

Please RSVP, with the number of people attending, to this email address ( by COB Monday 27 March 2023.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Thank you,

Carolyn Dick
