IPART is conducting a review of the local government rating system in NSW. Our aim is to recommend reforms to improve its efficiency and equity to ensure councils can implement sustainable fiscal policies over the longer term.
This Issues Paper outlines how we propose to approach this review, explains how stakeholders can provide input, and discusses the issues on which we particularly seek comment.
Submissions to this Issues Paper close on 13 May 2016. A public hearing on the Issues Paper will be held in Sydney on 26 April and there will be a webcast of the event.
