Christchurch City – Taking abuse of low-income families to a new level

ByJohn Minto-June 5, 202072772

Most of us are used to councils coming up with proposals to shift the cost of council services onto the poor buttoday’s water charging proposal from Christchurch City Counciltakes abuse of people on low incomes to another level. It’s unbelievable.

The council proposes to allocate water on the basis of the value of the rates paid by property owners. Using above that allocation you will have to pay. This means wealthy residents will get higher allocations of water before they have to pay extra than low-income families living in lower value houses.

“The council’s head of three waters and waste, Helen Beaumont, said a home priced at $500,000 has an allocation of 800 to 900 litres per day, whereas a $1 million dollar home gets about 1700 litres.”
