Through Landgate, the Valuer General assesses the Gross Rental Value (GRV) of each individual property every three years. When this data is received by the City, a rate in the dollar is applied to calculate the rates amount.
In 2020/21 rates were frozen and some ratepayers received a one-off credit to ensure they paid no more as part of the City’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. The credit will not be continued in 2021/22 and rates in the dollar will increase. The increase will be modest though, with residential ratepayers paying 0.9% more on average compared to 2019/20. That is an increase of only 0.9% over 2 years.
Ratepayers are invited to make submissions in writing to the Chief Executive Officer, City of Stirling, 25 Cedric Street, Stirling WA 6021 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be received no later than 4.00pm, Tuesday 29 June 2021 to be considered.
