Christchurch City Council fees and charges for Official Information requests for 2021/2022.
The Council adopted its Long Term Plan 2021–31 on 23 June 2021 and changes to fees and charges for some Council-run services and facilities are being implemented in stages over the coming months.
These fee changes were signalled earlier this year when the Council went out for public consultation on its Long Term Plan 2021–31 – its budget for the next 10 years.
