Differential Rating in the Shire of Denmark

The Shire of Denmark provides services to a diverse region consisting of many different land zones and uses. In order to reflect this diversity and ensure that rating levels are fair and equitable, Council has imposed a differential rating system [“the rating system”], in accordance with Section 6.35 of the Local Government Act 1995. The rating system imposes different rating charges for different types of properties to ensure the Shire of Denmark is able to equitably provide various facilities, services and infrastructure to electors, residents and property owners.

Rating within the Shire of Denmark is imposed in accordance with Council Policy P030101 ‘Council Rating Equity Policies’.  For the latest version of this policy, please refer to the Policy Manual available from www.denmark.wa.gov.au/governance-documents-and-forms.
