COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic Council has made changes to a range of events and services to keep you safe.


Postponing rates

It is possible in some circumstances to apply for a postponed rates payment.

How to apply

To apply download the postponed rates payment application

You are able to do this if you are:

  • Responsible for paying rates for land on which there is a single dwelling house, that is used or occupied and which is zoned for the purpose of industry, commerce or the erection of residential flat buildings, or
  • Responsible for paying the rates for land, which is capable of subdivision and on which there is a single dwelling house that is used or occupied as such.

The rates postponed relate to the portion of the value that the Valuer-General determines is related to its zoned or permitted use.
