Christchurch faces yet another rates rise under the council's Three Year Plan.

The 6.6 per cent (average) rise will set homeowners back $8 a week to cover the cost of road repairs, footpaths, rubbish collection, and water supply - among others.

The plan goes before council today for debate, and the discussion is expected to last two days.

The rise will be effective from July this year if the plan goes ahead. It includes a 1.93 per cent earthquake levy, designed to offset the council's borrowing as it continues recovery work.

The largest part of the rise will be put towards roads and footpaths badly damaged in the quake.
