Published on 20/08/2015
Rotorua Lakes Council has responded to the difficult economic condition many dairy farmers are experiencing from the downturn in dairy prices.

The council is offering dairy farming category ratepayers the opportunity to defer their first 2015/16 year rates payment, without penalty, until 20th October 2015.

This payment would need to be 1/9th of the year’s total rates; with a further eight equal payments on the 20th of each month through to 20 June 2016.

Farmers wanting to enter into this arrangement, should either email the council at or ring 07 348 4199.
