IPART has partially approved Shoalhaven City Council’s application to increase general income above the rate peg from 1 July 2017. Instead of a permanent cumulative increase of 29.05% over two years, IPART has granted Shoalhaven City Council a temporary 1-year increase in general income of 13.2%, including the 1.5% rate peg.
