Exemption from Rates Application

This application relates specifically to the exemption from rates. This exemption does not affect the zoning or subdivision potential of the property under Council’s Local Environmental Plan. 

There are some parcels of land that are exempt from rates and charges. These include parcels of land within a national park and land that belongs to, for example, a religious body or school.

Unless you meet the exemption criteria outlined in the Local Government Act, you cannot be exempt from paying rates.
