Rates Payment Options

Your rates are calculated based on:

  • the land value of your property, which does not include the value of your home. This amount is determined by Land and Property Information NSW and is typically 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
  • the rate in the dollar adopted by Council each year, which is specific to the use of the land.  For the 2016 - 2017 rating period, the rate in the dollar for each type of land use is:

    - residential rate 0.0024046 cents
    - business rate 0.0050285 cents
