The Revenue and Rating Plan is a new requirement under the Local Government Act 2020. It is for a four-year ‘block’ period starting on 30 June in the year after each general election. It provides a medium-term plan for how Council will generate income to deliver on the Council Plan, programs and services, and capital works commitments over the four-year period. The Plan defines the revenue and rating ‘envelope’ within which Council proposes to operate.
Council is seeking your feedback on the current policy and future directions of this Plan before it is considered for adoption (late June 2021). The consultation process is held in conjunction with the 2021-22 Draft Budget consultation process.
About the Revenue and Rating Plan
