Revenue and Financing Policy

About the policy

The Revenue and Financing Policy sets out the way Council plans to fund operating expenses and capital expenditure.  The requirements of a Revenue and Financing Policy are outlined in section 103 of the Local Government Act 2002.

Councils' Fees and Charges for 2019/20 are available to view.

Council adopted the current Revenue and Financing policy in June 2018. A copy of the policy is included in Council’s Long Term Plan 2018-28.



Your feedback

Napier City Council proposes to change its Revenue and Financing Policy.  These are highlighted in yellow and include:
