Special Rate Variation Survey

Support Council in making decisions about your community!

Council is committed to maintaining a vibrant Weddin Shire community. To do this, Council needs to continue to provide services that meet the needs of our Shire. As a community, we need to secure sufficient funds to ensure that quality services are provided.

At its June 2014 meeting Council resolved to submit an application to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) for a Special Rate Variation (SRV). A SRV is a change in the general rate payable above the yearly increase that is available under the Rate Pegging system from the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) and the NSW State Government. Previously, the rate pegging system has seen the Council adopt rate increases of approximately 2.5% - 3.5% based on this allowable increase. Council is applying for an increase of 4% above rate pegging (estimated at 3%) each year for the next 4 years. Based on the estimated rate peg of 3% per annum, this equates to a total increase of 7% per annum for the next 4 years.

For more information Council has released a Survey and SRV Fact Sheet. The survey is also available for completion online at: To support Council in making decisions about our community, you are asked to read the SRV Fact Sheet and to complete the SRV survey.

The closing date for the survey is Friday, 5 December 2014.
