Rates Information: Objection to Categorisation Rates Information: Objection to Categorisation


A ratepayer may object to a land categorisation by filling in the form below. It needs to be received by Council within 30 days after the rate's notice having been issued.

Please consider the following:

  1. The only ground on which you may object is that, having regard to the criteria determined by Council for categorising rateable land, your land should have been included, as at the date of issue of the rate notice, in another of the categories specified in the Table of Land Categories.
  2. The giving of a notice of objection will not, in the meantime, affect the levy and recovery of the rates specified in the rate notice.
  3. If, because of objection made, your land is included in another category, as at the date of issue of the rate notice, an adjustment of rates will be made.
