Tasman District Council’s Proposal for a Rates Remission Policy for Land Affected by Natural Disasters is now available for public consultation.
The proposed policy covers residential land affected by natural disaster, in order to provide rating relief for ratepayers unable to inhabit their dwellings or buildings as a result.
It is intended that rates relief for those affected by the December 2011 rainfall event will be determined by Council, on application, if this rates remission policy is adopted.
As it is proposing a major policy the Council is required to undertake a Special Consultative Procedure, the first step of which is the calling of submissions as advertised on page five of this edition of Newsline and recent editions of the Nelson Mail.
