NRC considers interim judgment on rating process

 

Northland Regional Council received an interim judgment late last week relating to the judicial review in the matter between the Mangawhai Ratepayers and Residents Association, and Mr and Mrs Rogan; against Northland Regional Council (NRC) and Kaipara District Council (KDC).

The interim judgment by the High Court declares: “The NRC’s rates for the KDC region have not been lawfully set or assessed for the rating years from 2011/2012 to 2015/2016 inclusive.”

However, the legal implications of this are not clear until the Court makes a final decision.

“The judgment and the finding1s are complex and it will require time to digest them and understand what this means for the regional council,” says NRC CEO, Malcolm Nicolson. “The judgment potentially has significant consequences for the local government sector in New Zealand.”

He says the council intends to respond to the Court’s request for further evidence and submissions, which the Court has asked for by no later than 21 November 2016.

Mr Nicolson can provide no further comment at this stage as the judgment is still in the legal process.
