  • Zone allocations from benefit works and services rates over the respective management zones on a capital value basis.
  • Landowner allocations from direct charges on landowners.
  • River management and flood protection direct benefit allocation from a differential rating system over the area of direct benefit based on capital value (Tauranga - Taupo River and Tongariro River). A direct charge on Taupo District Council (Lakeshore Protection), a direct charge on Hamilton City Council (River Improvement Main in the Middle Waikato zone) and a direct charge on Otorohanga District Council to be replaced from 1 July 2003 with a uniform targeted rate (Flood Protection Waipa zone). A differential rating system over the area of direct benefit based on land area (Lower Waikato excluding Huntly) and a direct charge on Waikato District Council to be replaced from 1 July 2003 with a uniform targeted rate (Huntly).
