Environmental Levy

Council introduced the Environmental Levy as a means of undertaking environmental management works. The levy currently raises around $1.3 million per annum for local environmental works at an average cost of $44 per rate payer.

Council recognises the value and importance in providing an environmental program that offers and delivers opportunities to help sustain and improve the local environment.

The Environmental Levy Policy provides a framework for how the new method for the allocation of funds will work.

Grants are now closed for the 2018/19 Environmental Levy Grants Program.

Applications are currently being assessed and successful applicants will be notified in August 2018.

Further funds could potentially become available for a second round of funding based on the outcome of this assessment.

For further information please contact Council's Grants Administration Officer on 02 6648 4278.
