i.      Properties categorised as Residential (Not being Strata Titled)

 

A flat charge of $25.00 for a Stormwater Management Service Charge is to be charged against each eligible assessment categorised as Residential within the urban stormwater catchment. 

 

ii.     Properties categorised as Residential (Strata Titled)

 

A flat charge of $12.50 for a Stormwater Management Service Charge is to be levied against each eligible residential strata unit within the urban stormwater catchment. 

 

iii.    Properties categorised as Business (Not being Strata Titled)

 

A Stormwater Management Service Charge is to be charged against each eligible assessment (not being strata titled) categorised as business within the urban stormwater catchment area based on the total area of the assessment.  A charge of $25.00 for every 350 square metres or part of 350 square metres will apply, with a minimum charge of $25.00 to apply for those properties with an area of less than 350 square metres.

 

I.     Properties categorised as Business (Strata Units)

 

A Stormwater Management Service Charge against each eligible business strata unit within the urban stormwater catchment area based on one of the following two scenarios:

 

Scenario 1 – Business Strata Units Only

 

If the strata complex contains only business properties (i.e. not mixed development) the charge per strata unit will be calculated by using a charge of $25.00 per 350m² of the land area occupied by the strata scheme (or part thereof), proportioned by the unit entitlement of each lot in the strata scheme.  In the event that this approach results in charge of less than $5.00 per unit, a minimum charge of $5.00 will be levied on each strata unit.

 

Scenario 2 – Business & Residential Strata Units (Mixed Development)

 

If the strata complex contains mixed development (i.e. properties rated as both business and residential) the dominant category of the strata scheme must be determined and charges will apply for Business strata unit or Residential Strata units as previously adopted. In the event that a mixed development is 50% residential and 50% business, council has the discretion to determine whether to charge the property as a residential or business property.

   

II.    Urban Land Exempt from the Stormwater Management Service Charge

 

The same exemptions that apply to non-rateable properties for other rates and charges also apply in respect of the stormwater management service charge pursuant to the Local Government Act.  In addition, the following properties are also exempted from this charge under the provisions:

 

·   Rateable land owned by the Crown

·   Rateable land under a lease for private purposes granted under the Housing Act 2001 or the Aboriginal Housing Act 1998

·   Vacant Land

 

6.       In accordance with section 566 of the Act, that Council adopts the maximum rate of interest as determined by the Division of Local Government in Circular 15-14 dated 5 May 2015 of 8.5% for 2015/2016 on overdue rates and charges.                                  (Woods/Richardson)
