Under State legislation concessions on Council rates and charges are available for eligible pensioners.
The amount of the concession available on an annual basis is up to a maximum of $250 on all ordinary rates and domestic waste management charges. People who become, or cease to be, eligible pensioners during the year will receive a concession proportionate to the number of full quarters in which they are an eligible pensioner.
To be eligible to receive this concession you must satisfy the following criteria:
- You must be a ratepayer for the property you are making application
- You must possess a current pensioner concession card
- The property must be your sole or principal place of residence.
If you satisfy the above criteria, please complete the Pensioner Concession Application Form (PDF) and return it to Council in person, along with your Pensioner Concession Card. The form can also be obtained by telephoning 02 6965 1900 during office hours.
Please Note: If joint owners are eligible for a pensioner concession, a separate form will need to be completed byeach owner to receive the maximum rebate, otherwise only a partial rebate will be granted.
