The Hardship Rate Relief Concession
In certain circumstances, Council will grant a Pensioner Rate Concession to eligible pensioners who are solely responsible for payment of rates on a property, notwithstanding the nature of ownership of the property. (eg Where a property is in the name of a deceased estate.)

The Hardship Rate Relief Concession Application Form is used for this purpose.

Council does not provide concessions to non-pensioners.

 Fire & Emergency Services Levy

The FESL will help provide life-saving equipment, firefighters, staff and volunteers, training, infrastructure and community education activities for our fire and emergency services. The NSW Government and local government also make a direct contribution to funding these agencies.

The FESL commences on 1 July 2017, and will replace the existing Emergency Services Levy payable on insurance premiums.
