The Local Government Act requires all rateable parcels of land to be categorised for rating purposes. There are four main rating categories:
To establish the appropriate rateable category of a parcel of land, the dominant use of the land needs to be determined. A request can be made to Council to change a rating category by completing the below application form. This form can also be used to request a change of category for the purpose of levying the Fire and Emergency Services Levy (FESL).
To be included in the Farmland rating category a separate application needs to be completed.
