Special Rates VariationApplication to IPART
IPART has approved Council’s Special Rate Variation (SRV) application in full.
The approved overall increase to land rates for the 2023/24 year is 45.78% (including 3.7% rate peg). Council will limit the increase in the residential, farming and business (general) rating categories to 27.7% (including the 3.7% rate peg) with the balance of the increase to be levied against the business power generation sub-category, mining category and a new quarrying business sub-category or sub-categories.
IPART`s assessment found that the council met all of the Office of Local Government criteria for its proposed SRV and therefore approved Council’s application.
