How rates are calculated in Cumberland City Council

The Independent Pricing & Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) for Local Government determined that Cumberland City Council may increase its general income by not more than 2% above the general income for the 2021/2022 financial year.

Rates are calculated based on the property value as determined by the NSW Valuer General. A rate in the dollar is applied to the property value, subject to a minimum amount. The 2019 base date land valuations were used for rating purposes. Further details are provided below.
