Property rates are Council's principle revenue source. Valuations provided by the Valuer-General are used to calculate the rates on each property. For further information on Rates and frequently asked questions, please click here.
Collection of Council's rates is essential to the funding of services and capital works. To encourage this, Council offers a 2% discount on current rates where rates are paid in full by the first instalment due date.
You may choose to pay your rates in full on or before the first instalment date, or by four instalments.
Instalment 1 - 10th August 2012
Instalment 2 - 31st October, 2012
Instalment 3 - 31st January, 2013
Instalment 4 - 31st March, 2013
Any ratepayers who are experiencing genuine difficulties in meeting these dates can apply for alternative payment arrangements by contacting Council's Rates Officer, Mrs Amy Solomon.
