Financial Hardship (Rates Relief) Policy

Council understands that during times of financial hardship, residential ratepayers may experience difficulty paying rates. In addition to the City providing flexible payment arrangements, Council has developed a financial hardship policy to provide relief to eligible residential ratepayers. This policy allows the City to apply additional interest generated by The Quarter HQ to write-off interest of up to $1,000 on outstanding rates. If you think you are eligible, please download the Financial Hardship (Rates Relief) Policy and application form and bring the completed forms into our Administration Building. Remember to also bring a hardship letter from a qualified financial body.
