    Default Auckland Council Rate Rise

    Another 14% increase in rates this year.
    So much for low inflation.
    The three most harmful addictions are heroin, carbohydrates and a monthly salary - Fred Wilson.

    I see a 2.5% average increase. http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/e...mjuly2014.aspx

    Of course, that's still way too high.

    Also doesn't seem fair to those who pay for services which are free in other areas of Auckland, such as Papakura's rubbish collection, or anywhere-outside-Manukau's swimming pools.

    Here are the figures for 4 Auckland properties:

    1. Torbay 3brm house: 2015: $1858 2016: $2117 => 14% increase
    2. Torbay 2brm unit: 2015: $1470 2016: $1648 => 12% increase
    3. Torbay 2brm unit: 2015: $1470 2016: $1648 => 12% increase
    4. New Lynn 3brm unit: 2015 $1316 2016: $1537 => 16% increase

    More to come - but don't think I'll get a 2.5% average!
    Same level of increases previous year as well.

    I am guessing big increases in value .. and before you start it doesn't mean more money for Council .. just less rates for someone with a house that did not increase in value so much. You never hear a peep from those guys. Poll tax anyone?
