Proposed fees and charges for planning and miscellaneous services

We're proposing to increase some of our planning fees. Community feedback is invited by 5pm on Tuesday 4 June. Detailed information about how to make a submission is included in the proposal document.

We review fees and charges for Council services every year. This enables Council to be satisfied that they are transparent, fair and reasonable, and market comparable.

As a result of the most recent review, we are proposing variable increases to the fees we charge for planning and miscellaneous services. Most fixed charges and deposits will not increase, but charges based on hourly charge-out rates will increase by approximately 3 per cent to keep pace with increasing operating costs.

For more information and the schedule of proposed fees and charges, download the document at the bottom of this page.
