Remission and postponement policies
We may remit a penalty wherewe consider that it is fair and equitable to do so, upon receipt of an application from a ratepayer.
We will postpone regional council rates where:
If granted, the annual rates will be postponed for a period of one year. The postponement must be reapplied for annually.
Greater Wellington Regional Council may remit some or all of the regional council rates in special circumstances where it considers it just and equitable to do so. Applications need to be made in writing and contain supporting information.
We may grant an application for a remission or postponement on all or some of the rates on MÄori freehold land provided that the land is the subject of a MÄori Land Court order stating that the rating unit is MÄori freehold land. These applications must be made in writing and be received by Council prior to the commencement of the rating year.
