Public access owners details

The Local Government Rating Act (2002) limits public access to name and postal address information that we hold for rating purposes. Currently, the public has access to our rating information database but cannot view rate payment details or ratepayer name and postal address particulars. A recent change to legislation now requires that name and postal address details are made accessible to the public unless the property owner advises us in writing that they want the information withheld.

The name and postal address information became publicly available from December 31, 2005. Please note that the name and address information will only be made available at our offices and that bulk collection of names and addresses is not permitted under the Act.

If you are happy for your details to appear in the rating information database no action is required on your part.

Ratepayers wishing to withhold their names and/or postal address information must notify the us in writing. You may revoke your request at any time by written notice. You can apply online to withhold your name and address from the publicly available rating database.

If you have any queries please contact the customer service centre at the Taupo District Council
on 07 376 0899.
