Rates & property

The services we provide include building and maintaining roads, libraries, parks, playgrounds, protecting our coastline and strengthening our local economy.

Rates comprise 79 per cent of our operating income. We review our policies each year to ensure a fair distribution of payments for ratepayers across the various categories. Rates are a form of taxation based on property values (as determined by the Valuer-General).

State Senior Card holders are eligible to apply to postpone some of their rates.
Other ratepayers who meet certain criteria may be eligible for Council rebates, capping or remissions.
