Environment Canterbury's rates will rise by more than $2 million in the 2013-14 year.

ECan commissioners agreed to the increases at a meeting today.

Total ECan rates - general plus targeted - have been set at $81.123m, up from $78.847 million, an increase of 2.9 per cent.

The 2.9 per cent is made up of a 3.9 per cent increase in general rates and a 1.8 per cent rise in targeted rates.

The increase works out to about an extra $10.20 per household per year.

However, actual rates will vary across the region, depending on work programmes under way and recent property valuations.

Targeted rates have been set at $38.237m, up from $37.571m in the 2012-13 year.

General rates have risen by $1.61m to $42.886m. 

ECan also adopted its Annual Plan at the meeting.
