Proposed fees and charges for planning and miscellaneous services

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're proposing variable increases to the fees we charge for planning and miscellaneous services, effective from 1 July 2021. Most fixed charges and deposits won’t increase, but some will to reflect additional time processing applications.

We’re proposing to increase charges based on hourly charge-out rates by approximately 2% to keep pace with increasing operating costs.

For more information and the schedule of proposed fees and charges, download the document below.
