Rating Information Database Available for Inspection

Selwyn district’s Rating Information Database (RID) is available for public viewing at any
time on Council website at selwyn.govt.nz/rates, or you can call into the Council’s Rolleston
offices, 2 Norman Kirk Drive, Rolleston, between the hours of 8.30am–5pm, Monday to Friday,
excluding public holidays. There is no fee to view the database.

The Selwyn RID contains Selwyn district-wide property valuation details, property rating
classifications and any current rates the property may be liable for. This includes rates set by
the Selwyn District Council and the regional council Environment Canterbury. RID does not give
owner or ratepayer details.

Please note that the purpose of the RID is to allow people to check what rate types and
differentials have been applied to their account for a particular rating year. The figures
displayed on the RID should not be used as confirmation of the actual rates charged/payable
on a property but are indicative of future rates at a given point in time.

This public notice meets the terms of Section 28 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002.

Flush your taps

Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces of metals to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several hours. Although the health risk is small the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking-water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings. We are recommending this simple precaution for all households, including those on public and private water supplies. This notice is issued by Selwyn District Council on behalf of the Director-General of Health, Ministry of Health.
