What Council Does
Roading Rate Information
As part of the 2008 Annual Plan, Council adopted a new model for the roading rate. The model, developed by Morrison-Low, allocates roading costs by tonnage and capital value.
In response to submissions, Council also agreed to a further round of consultation and development with interested sector groups. Staff have met with forestry and mining sector representatives, as well as Federated Farmers. In addition, further work has been carried out to verify and update the data in the model. Significant changes to the model include:
- Livestock, and feed and grain tonnage added into the model (affecting dairy and non-dairy sectors).
- Additional aggregates tonnage (affecting all sectors).
- Moving fertiliser tonnage from dairy and non-dairy sectors to the industrial sector.
- Update of the variables in the model for most recent information (tonnage, property information, Roading Asset Management Plan).
Council therefore resolved on a set of principles for establishing cost shares, to sit alongside the model.
Final decisions on the roading rate were made as part of the adoption of the 2009-2019 LTCCP.
