2022/23 draft Annual Plan


2022/23 draft Annual Plan, the proposed introduction of SUIPs, and associated policy changes

Consultation on our draft Annual Plan for the 2022/23 year has now closed.

Our annual plan updates the work programme and budget for the 2022/23 year.

We also want to implement a more fair and equitable way of spreading rates across the district with a proposed change to how we rate some annual charges through the introduction of SUIPs.

What are SUIPs?

Separately Used and Inhabited Parts (SUIPs) are one or more parts of a property that might be used separately to the main building. This might include:

  • Retirement villages
  • Farms / lifestyle properties with more than one dwelling, i.e. worker’s accommodation
  • Farms / lifestyle properties with businesses operating from the same property.
  • Multiple commercial activities within one building; and this may also include permitted residential accommodation within that business premises.
  • Home based businesses.
  • Two or more houses, flats or apartments on one property.
  • Residential accommodation rented individually per room.
  • Separate dwelling for short-term accommodation

We’re proposing to charge annual rates charges against each SUIP, rather than charging per property. This would mean that households would pay their fair share of the cost of contributing to services that deliver benefit to the whole district.
