Special Rates and Charges Policy - Contributory Schemes

The Local Government Act gives Council the power to levy special rates and charges to cover the cost of infrastructure improvement works, among other things.

Council has adopted a Special Rates & Charges Policy, in line with Ministerial Guidelines, to provide a fair and equitable process for the construction of infrastructure improvements such as, unsealed roads, stormwater drainage and footpaths.

The Policy was originally adopted by Council in 2008 and has had a number of reviews, which have considered minor drainage installations (2011) and footpaths (2016). View the current Policy below.
