Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By AN­DREA O’NEIL

Dog reg­is­tra­tion fees, liquor li­cences, and LIM re­ports are ris­ing by 5.7 per cent from July, while mar­ket stall reg­is­tra­tions are drop­ping by more than $200 in the coun­cil’s Long Term Plan pro­posal.

Dog reg­is­tra­tions will in­crease from $139 a year to $145 and from $99 to $103 for neutered dogs. Late reg­is­tra­tion penal­ties will climb $5 to $40.

Food stall fees are be­ing en­tirely re­struc­tured, with a $434 an­nual fee be­ing re­placed with much lower an­nual fees, bring­ing them in line with fees charged else­where in Welling­ton. Mo­bile food stall reg­is­tra­tion and li­cence fees are now $215 an­nu­ally and stalls rais­ing funds for sports clubs will now be charged just $47 a year.

Li­cences for busi­nesses in­clud­ing hair­dressers, fu­neral par­lours, camp­ing grounds and liquor stores will rise be­tween $8 and $78 a year.

Land In­for­ma­tion Mem­o­ran­dum (LIM) re­ports will rise by $15 to $270 for res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties and by $20 to $360 for com­mer­cial or in­dus­trial prop­erty.

The over­all fee rises re­flect a 4 per cent Con­sumer Price In­dex rise and the ac­tual costs of li­cens­ing to the coun­cil, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by gen­eral man­ager of en­vi­ron­men­tal and reg­u­la­tory stan­dards David Rolfe.
