Rating Strategy 2018 adopted

Campaspe Shire Council has adopted the revised Rating Strategy 2018, an important document outlining the rationale for applying fair and equitable rates in the shire.

Whilst not changed, the strategy has been updated in line with introduction of Victorian Government rate capping (2.25 per cent for 2018/19), along with changes made to the Local Government Act 1989 and Valuation of Land Act 1960.

After public exhibition of the Rating Strategy, one question was received.

The adopted Rating Strategy 2018 is available on council’s website.
