Horowhenua District Council Rating Information

Simply enter a Street Address or VG Number in the fields below to search the Horowhenua District Council Rating Information Database for property rates.


The Horowhenua District is part of the Horizons region.  As such, rates for the Horizons Regional Council are payable but not included in the information provided here. Information on the Horizons Regional Council rates can be found on the Horizons Regional Council website.

Indicative Rates for the 2021/2022 Rating Year

Proposed (indicative) rates for the 2021/2022 Rating Year are now available alongside the current rates.

The proposed rates displayed are not final and should not be considered or quoted as accurate. The indicative figures are calculated as per year 1 (2021/2022) of the 2021-2041 Long Term Plan, and the Consultation Document rating change proposal, which may be subject to change following public submissions and Council deliberation.

Proposed Rating policy changes are outlined in the Consultation Document and relate to changes to both the General Rate and Roading Targeted rate differentials.
For more information about the changes, please view the Consultation Document available on www.horowhenua.govt.nz/growingourfuturetogether.

Growth in the rating base (more subdivisions and houses) has the effect of reducing rates to ratepayers that were already on the Rating Database. The indicative rates have the assumption relating to growth factored in. However, if the growth is lower than the assumed growth the actual rates increase will go up. On the other hand, if growth is higher than the assumption the rates increase will go down.

Valuation Changes

At least once every three years every district and city in New Zealand is revalued to set the values on which council rates are based for the following three years. New rateable valuations for Horowhenua properties were sent out by QV in November 2019. These new values have been used by Horowhenua District Council to determine rating from 1 July 2020. To find out more about the revaluation process, please visit our How Will Revaluations Affect Your Rates page.

Revaluation does not increase the amount Council collects from rates, it just helps us to work out everyone’s share of rates. The rating valuation provides the means to share the cost of the rates across the district according to a set of property values that are provided for every property on a common date (1 August 2019). Using a common date means that every property is valued on the same basis and at the same time.
