What is the Revenue and Rating Plan?

The Revenue and Rating Plan:

  • determines the share of the rates revenue each property is to contribute;
  • does not influence how much money Council can raise through rates revenue;
  • includes details in relation to payment options, rebates, interest and financial hardship; and
  • addresses other sources of revenue including user fees and charges, grants and contributions.

We want to hear your thoughts on our Revenue and Rating Plan. Now is the time to have your say on how Council distributes the rates revenue across properties within the Municipality and generates revenue from other sources.

View the following presentation to learn how and why a Revenue and Rating Plan is developed.
