Rates, fees and charges


Rates and charges allow us to fund services. Rates and charges make up about 50 per cent of Council's total income. We administer various laws and regulations to help maintain and improve services and facilities for the community. These services include community services, sporting and recreation services, environmental planning, building regulation, public health, environmental protection and waste collection, treatment and disposal.

Rates Instalment Due Dates

The Local Government Act 1993 prescribes the following due dates each year:

  • 1st Instalment - 31 August
  • 2nd Instalment - 30 November
  • 3rd Instalment - 28 February
