Christchurch City Council rates are largely allocated on the basis of property rating values.
The deadline for Area 3 rates payments was 31 August, and with our service centres closed under COVID-19 Alert Levels 4 and 3, the Council is taking steps to make sure ratepayers who normally pay their rates in person aren’t caught out.
They will have until close of business on Wednesday 15 September to pay at a service centre without incurring a penalty charge. We’re also encouraging residents who normally pay their rates in person to try out alternative ways to pay, such as direct debit, online banking, phone banking and credit card or debit card.
To some people, online or direct debits may seem difficult or new, but our customer service staff are all here to talk you through it over the phone or by email, or in person when our facilities reopen. Contact us.
