For Ratepayers

Starts Side Navigation Ends Secondary Navigation
IPART annually reviews council rates and charges and sets the maximum increase councils can apply to their general income from these charges – this is called the rate peg.
 
Councils can apply to IPART for special variations to the rate peg – see Special Variations.
 
We also review council development contributions plans that propose contribution levels above the cap the NSW Government has set. The Minister for Local Government will then consider IPART’s recommendations.
 
From time to time IPART can also conduct special reviews of local government for the NSW Government.
