The Rating Powers Act 1988 (RPA) provides Council with specific mechanisms for rating. These include:
Differential rating systems use a classification system to identify and allocate the private benefits/costs of river protection, soil conservation and drainage schemes. This involves classifying land receiving benefit from works into a number of classes depending on the level of benefit received and/or the degree of contribution to the problem, and levying a special rate against that land with a varying scale of rates for different benefit classes. The system is ideal where benefit is confined within a defined area and applies primarily to land and property in private ownership.
