Your rates contribute to the provision of day-​to-day services, maintaining and building new facilities for the community, improving infrastructure and protecting the environment in the C​ity.​

Examples include:

  • Waste collection, recycling and street cleaning;
  • Local road upgrades;
  • Improvements to leisure and recreational facilities;
  • Improvements to library services; and
  • Town centre improvements.

Rates are calculated based on the land value of your property, and not the value of your premises. ​ This value is determined by the NSW Valuer General, and is usually reviewed every three years. If you own a strata title property, the land value of the entire site is divided by the unit entitlement (listed on your strata plan) to ascertain the land value for each unit.

Rates are calculated using a rate in the dollar determined and reviewed by Council each year. It is a formula based on land value and usage – business or residential. All land valuations and rates calculations are subject to a minimum amount.
