Rates and Valuations
Detailed information about 2013/2014 rates and charges administered by the Council
A new Rating Strategy which lowers the rates burden for business and industry is at the heart of Council's 2013/2014 Budget.
The rating strategy was developed after considering the recommendations from a Rating Strategy Reference Group, convened following community feedback in last year's budget process.
In looking at the burden of overall rates revenue on each rating category, Council has made it more equitable by lowering the proportion that commercial and industrial categories contribute, compared to residential. While the proportion contributed by residential rates will increase, the whole community will benefit from the relief this will give to local business.
More information about the budget, your rates and Council services and initiatives is available on this website or by contacting the Council in person, by phone, by email or online.
