The package of reforms in the Rating of Whenua Māori Amendment Bill were intended to remove one of the most frequently cited barriers to the development of Māori freehold land.

But has it?

The changes affect every local authority, whether there’s one block of Māori land or a thousand, and include a new obligation to consider remission for development, the creation of a new unit of liability, a twist on rating of contiguous rating units, and a need to do historical research.

Lizzy Wiessing covers the practical impacts of these changes. Whether you’re finishing up your submission on the Bill or figuring out how to implement these changes in practice this a webinar for those with interests in rating, finance or policy.
