A hearing has been scheduled for Environment Southland’s long-term plan for the decade spanning from 2021-31.

Council’s preferred rates change option was a 20% increase, to be followed up by a 5% increase in the next three years and a 4% increase after that.

The second option was for a 16% average increase with the same subsequent increase as option one.

The hearing would begin at 10am in council chambers.
