About Us

Rate hikes, proposed new taxes and a culture of wasteful spending means that the time had come for an Auckland Ratepayers’ Alliance.

We're a group of concerned citizens who have had enough of the Council wasting ratepayer money and want to hold Auckland Council to account. We expose Council waste, fight for transparency and provide a strong voice for householders struggling under an increased rates burden.

We are not a political party nor a council ticket. We are independent of the Council but will work with any candidates, councillors or local board members who also champion better value for money for our rates dollar.

If you agree that Auckland Council needs a watchdog, join the Ratepayers' Alliance. We rely on people like you supporting and donating to the cause.
