This Ratepayers and Residents' website, e-mail address and associated facebook page and group were created back in June 2015 as a repository for ratepayers and residents throughout New Zealand to locate their - and others' Ratepayer and Residents' Associations.

We re-requested contact details from all of NZ's 67 Local Territorial Authorities in August 2017 and are currently in the process of updating listings.
You can find out whether there is a Ratepayer and Residents Association in your area by going to the Regional Council tabs above and scrolling down to your own Local Territorial Authority.
If you know of any Ratepayers and Residents' Associations that aren't listed here or that the information provided needs to be updated or changed , please get in touch with us here at : ratepayersandresidents@gmail.com
