Rate capping dropped
The new Planning Minister has removed the clause on rate capping from amended legislation that the parliament was considering. I'm sure they will still have in place auditing to ensure that rates are kept in check. If they had already been in place the set rate would have been in place for this year (maybe 2%) and it would have been more difficult to waive as Council would be unsure of what would happen next year. This decision makes good sense.
