For the purpose of this policy, the definition of a single ratepayer is inclusive of all joint owners of a property. To clarify, multiple landowners of the same property will be considered one ratepayer, so the limit of 200 tonnes of gravel per ratepayer, per year will apply to all owners as though they were a single ratepayer.
