About Alice in Our Place | Ngā kaupapa o Nā Alice i tā mātou rohe

We’re looking into the next 10 to 30 years, and our proposed plans for getting to Our Place/Ngā kaupapa o tā tātou kainga – which is the ideal Hauraki District that our communities imagined when we spoke with them last year. 

We need to talk about the big things that we have to do, some big changes we know are coming up, and what that means for you and your whānau, especially when it comes to paying the rates bill. We also want to talk about some of the projects that we can choose to do if we want to, and get your feedback on whether or not you think we should do them.

We’re also consulting on some of our other policies, including our Revenue and Financing Policy, Rates Remissions and Postponement Policies, and our 2021/22 Fees and Charges schedule. See changes to our financial and development policies for more information about these items.

We want to know what you think about...
