Rates Remission and Postponement - have your say

The Rates Remission and Postponement Policy is reviewed at least every six years (The Policy was last reviewed in 2023 to incorporate minor amendments). The policy allows us to provide rate relief in situations to support both the fairness and equity of the rating system and overall wellbeing of the community.

We are not proposing any major changes to the Policy apart from the removal of the policy on the remission of 2023/2024 targeted rates for kerbside collection. This was included in 2023 as a result of the new kerbside collection service to ensure that the targeted rate for the 2023/2024 year was only charged to properties where the kerbside collection service was available.

To find out more, you can find our Statement of Proposal and the Draft Rates Remission and Postponement Policy here.

This consultation is open between 21 March 2024 and 21 April 2024.
