Revenue and Rating Plan 2021 - 2022
The Revenue and Rating Plan establishes the revenue raising framework within which the Council proposes to work. The purpose of the Revenue and Rating Plan is to determine the most appropriate and affordable revenue and rating approach Council which in conjunction with other income sources will adequately finance the implementation of the Council Plan.
Schedule of Fees & Charges 2021 - 2022
The Schedule of Fees & Charges sets out the fees that Council may charge for 2021 - 2022. Where a fee amount is set through legislation, the legislated rate supersedes any amount listed in this schedule. When setting the fee rate consideration is given to the following:
- Equitable - the fees are fairly applied across a range of users and consideration is given to the user’s capacity to pay.
- Efficiency - the fees are simple for Council to administer.
- Clarity – users clearly understand how and when fees are applied.
- Transparency – the nature and use of the service is easily understood and accessible to all applicable users.
