Auckland Council is focused on continuing to help our communities and businesses recover, and providing the essential services Aucklanders rely on. But the economic impact of COVID-19 means that together we need to make some tough decisions about Auckland Council’s budget - like the rates we pay and what we spend our money on. Community organisations and residents need to have their say. This consultation will be open for your feedback from noon on 29 May until midnight on Friday 19 June. Our West online session, where you can ask questions and hear from our politicians, is this Sunday 31 May, 5pm-6.30pm.
Under normal circumstances if your recent Auckland Council rates invoice was not paid in full by 28 May 2020 a penalty payment would be applied to any outstanding balance. However, if you are experiencing financial difficulties, contact the council to arrange payment by smaller installments, or defer payment of the full amount, until 31 August 2020 without attracting penalties.

This research document was inspired by a conversation between members of the CW Board when discussing likely community impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown. It seeks to answers some of the key questions that were posed at that time.
It considers the topic of universal digital access, what we know from the census, what analysis exists about the Digital Divide in NZ and is there an affordable and simple “Switch on and use” (Plug & Play) device for those who have limited digital literacy.It is entirely based on accessing relevant material from the internet and most sources have been recorded.
