|General||Means all rating units connected to the Paraparaumu/Raumati/Waikanae or Ōtaki Wastewater Treatment Plant other than rating units in the "Community" or "Motels" or "Educational" or "Recreational" category.|
|Community||Means rating units used principally or exclusively as places of religious worship and instruction, marae, hospital and welfare homes, community health services and charitable institutions that provide maintenance or relief.|
|Motels||Means rating units connected used principally or exclusively as motels.|
|Educational||Means rating units connected used exclusively or principally by schools (with the exception of school houses), colleges, polytechnics, children's health camps and early childhood centres.|
