The independent Rates Strategy Advisory Committee is developing a new rating strategy for the coming five years and is asking for public input to ensure everyone’s opinion is considered.

There are four ways to get involved:

The survey results will help guide the Rates Strategy Advisory Committee's final recommendation to Councillors. The survey opens Tuesday 30 October and closes Tuesday 13 November.

The survey is now closed

Lodge a written submission

The Rates Strategy Advisory Committee welcomes written submissions covering any element of the Rates Strategy. However, to assist with the lodgement of submissions, there is a short summary(PDF, 411KB) available that covers the principles that will be considered along with some discussion points.

Submissions can be made via email to or via mail to PO Box 511 Horsham 3402. Submissions closed Tuesday 13 November at 5pm.
