The Hastings District Rating Revaluation for 2019 has been confirmed with the region substantially increasing its overall value.
The new rating valuations have been prepared for 32,279 properties on behalf of the Hastings District Council by Quotable Value (QV).
Rating valuations are carried out on all properties in New Zealand, usually once every three years to specifically help local councils set rates for the following three year period.
