Application for a Change in Rating Category

View from Warragamba Lookout

The Local Government Act requires all rateable parcels of land to be categorised for rating purposes. There are four main rating categories:

  1. Farmland
  2. Residential
  3. Mining
  4. Business

To establish the appropriate rateable category for a parcel of land, the dominant use for the land needs to be determined. A request can be made to Council to change a rating category. However, to be included in the Farmland rating category a separate application needs to be completed.
