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. 
 A significant update is currently being undertaken ( Ausgust-October 2018 ) in order to get the message out to as many ratepayer groups as possible about the inaugral conference being held in Nelson over the 10th and 11th of November 2018. 

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 :
