Regional fuel tax 22 Aug 2018

A council can make a proposal to the Minister of Transport for establishing a regional fuel tax.

The council would need to provide a plan for the transport programme and projects that would be funded by the revenue. The regional fuel taxes would have a maximum initial duration of 10 years, but a council could extend the tax before it expired, following a review.

If you think this extra tax is unwarranted and want to oppose it, keep your eyes open for local government proposals to impose it and be prepared to make submissions. That’s the nature of democracy.
