Proposed Differential Rates for 2020-2021

Published Thursday, 21st May 2020

The City of Wanneroo's proposed Differential Rates for 2020-2021 are now available for public comment.

Civic Centre at night time

In April 2020, Council committed to developing a budget based on 0% increase on annual rates for each residential property subject to no change in valuations. 

Whilst the proposed rate in the dollar has increased, the rates income generated is consistent with a 0% increase.

The proposed rate in the dollar, if adopted by council would mean:

  • the majority of ratepayers (58%) receive a reduction in rates charges compared to last year,
  • 8% of ratepayers would pay the same as last year,
  • 31% would see an increase of no more than $150.
  • The remaining portion of ratepayers (less than 3%) would see an increase greater than $150 mainly due to higher valuations. 

This would result in a rates revenue equal the same amount, or less, than what was collected last year.

This is based on the revaluation process and not Council seeking to raise additional income from rates.

It is expected that Council will be making the 20/21 Budget final at the end of June and residents are welcome to join the next council meeting.
