Background

The Local Government Act 2020 requires each Council to prepare a Revenue and Rating Plan to cover a minimum period of four years following each Council election.  

This Plan is an important part of Moorabool Shire Council’s integrated planning framework, which will support the achievement of the Community Vision and the Council Plan.

Strategies outlined in this Plan must align with the objectives contained in the Council Plan and will feed into our budgeting and long-term financial planning documents, as well as other strategic planning documents under our Council’s strategic planning framework.

This Plan will explain how Council calculates the revenue needed to fund its activities and how the funding burden will be apportioned between ratepayers and other users of Council’s facilities and services. 

The Plan sets out decisions that Council has made in relation to its currently adopted Rating Strategy to ensure the fair and equitable distribution of rates across property owners including  methodology and principles relating to non-rate revenue including user fees and charges, government grants, developer contributions and all other Council income sources.
