The Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 requires councils to prepare a Rating Information Database (RID). The database must include the following, in relation to each rating unit within Whangarei District:
all information that relates to the unit that is included in the District valuation roll for the District; and
all information that relates to the unit that is required to:
determine the category to which the unit belongs for setting a general rate
determine the category to which the unit belongs for setting a targeted rate
calculate the amount of liability for a targeted rate.
In accordance with Section 27(7) (b) of the Act, the Northland Regional Council has delegated the functions of maintaining the database to Whangarei District Council.

information included in the database, other than information entered from the District valuation roll, is incorrect
there has been a failure to enter a lawful amendment to the District valuation roll into the database.
