Policy on Remission of Rates on Low Valued Properties


The objective of the policy on remission of rates on low-valued properties is to minimise administrative costs in the collection of rates on properties that are low-valued. The Local Government Rating Act 2002 requires each separate property title to have a separate valuation/rating assessment. This has resulted in some low land valued assessments being created, particularly where subdivisions of assessments have not covered the full area.
