Kāpiti Coast District Council collects rates on behalf of the Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC). These rates are set by Greater Wellington.
At the beginning of each rating year you will receive two Rates Assessment Notices: one detailing Kāpiti Coast District Council rates and the other detailing Greater Wellington rates. Your quarterly instalment invoices, however, are combined to reflect both Councils rates on the one invoice.
The general rate is set to fund activities that reflect "public good" across the Wellington region. It is distinct from targeted rates, which are intended to recover costs of particular activities from particular groups (see "Targeted rates" below).
The general rate is spread across the whole region and funds activities such as managing resources, emergencies, harbours, regional parks and recreation areas, and environmental education. It is used to help fund all of Greater Wellington Regional Council's groups of activities, except the Wellington Regional Strategy, water supply, public transport, Warm Greater Wellington and the regional stadium.

The quarterly rates instalment may contain an insert. Copies of current and previous inserts are available below for download or print.
