Council rating base change

G S made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

The request was partially successful.

From: G S

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

Paras 142-144 of Ministry of Housing and Urban Development briefing entitled "Improving housing supply and affordability: more information" (dated 21 Jan 2021, available at states that MHUD understands that DIA will shortly report to their Minister on whether to require all local authorities to use land value for rating purposes.

I therefore request a copy of all work undertaken by DIA on whether or not to require Councils to only use land value rating. I request the whole document where appropriate, not just extracts (obviously you have a right to redacted matters under the OIA, but I am basically asking for you to note redact something on the basis that it is 'out of scope' of the request).

Kind regards,
