Rates and valuations

Funding council services and facilities

For general information about local government rates and valuations click here >>>

Council rates are a property-based charge. Councils use property values as the basis of their rate calculation.

Rate revenue, along with the council's other income, is used to help fund a range of services and facilities provided by the council for the enjoyment and safety of the whole community. Some examples of these services are road construction and maintenance, public gardens, youth and children's services, library services, and aged care services.
