2018 Environmental Levy Special Rate Variation

Council resolved in October 2017 to engage with the community with a view to considering making an application to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) for a Special Rate Variation (SRV).

The results of the engagement were tabled at the December 2017 Council meeting (Link) and led to Council making an application to IPART in February 2018.

The proposed SRV of 4.20% above the rate peg would allow for the continuation of the Environmental Levy which has been in place since 2008/2009 and funds significant environmental restoration projects to manage, protect and preserve our waterways and natural environment.
