Policies on the Remission and Postponement of Rates

The Policies on Remission and Postponement of Rates enable Council to consistently and fairly remit rates or penalties on rates, or allow postponing rates payments in various situations.
The policies are intended to provide rates relief in certain situations to support both the fairness and equity of the rating system and the overall wellbeing of the community.
The Statement of Proposal sets out the proposed changes and additions to the policies and the reasons for these changes.
