Draft Fees & Charges 2018/19

For 2018/19, the Council has undertaken a thorough review of its fees and charges, utilising an improved methodology which includes:

  • The convening of a Fees and Charges Working Party which met regularly from September 2017 to January 2018;
  • The 2.3% rage peg being applied to all non-regulatory/non-legislated fees and charges and rounding to the nearest 50c or $;
  • A conscious pricing exercise to identify the pricing principle / basis for fees and charges under Council’s jurisdiction and to set appropriate pricing for 2018/19; and
  • A review of GST was undertaken to ensure tax was correctly applied.

A full summary of the main changes to Fees and Charges for 2018/19 are included on pages 5-11 of the Draft Fees and Charges document.  New fees are identified throughout the schedule of Fees and Charges.  Regulatory/legislated fee and charges are applied on advice from relevant authorities.
