Rates are set annually in order to fund the net cost of running the district. The rate requirement is determined by the Hurunui Long Term Plan (or the Annual Plan) as part of the budgeting process and is then assessed on each property.
Rates must be paid by the due date. We offer a range of payment options and are always willing to discuss the needs of our customers.

Hurunui District Council bank account number is 03-0802-0946666-00.
