This fact sheet summarises IPART’s decisions on council applications for special variations and minimum rate increases in 2015-16.
IPART is seeking stakeholder views on how councils should index contribution rates between the adoption of a local infrastructure contribution plan, and the revision of the contributions plan.
This fact sheet provides information for councils and ratepayers about applications to increase minimum rates (MRs). It also describes some modifications to our assessment approach for 2020-21.
In our June 2015 Technical Paper1, we recommended that councils adopt a specific method to calculate the discount rate for use in net present value (NPV) modelling of contributions plans.
This fact sheet summarises IPART’s determinations for 13 council applications to increase rates by a special variation in 2019-20.
IPART requests councils to complete a Cost Survey that will be used to update the Local Government Cost Index (LGCI).
