Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We want to hear what you think of our plans for 2022/23

Would you like to know....

  • how Council plans to spend $69.8 million on Capital Projects in the next 12 months?
  • about the work Council is planning in your area in 2022/23?
  • what you could be charged to hire a hall or submit a Development Application in 2022/23?

The key documents outlining our budget and proposed activities for the year ahead are on public exhibition from 13 May to 10 June 2022:

The draft Operational Plan currently on exhibition includes:

  • information about specific projects and programs set for the financial year
  • Council’s annual Budget
  • Revenue Policy
  • Fees and Charges
  • a Capital Works Program outlining significant investment in asset maintenance, asset renewal and new asset works across the Shire.

To learn more about the planned capital works, view our interactive map, Capital Projects 2022/23. Here you will find a number of proposed Capital Projects, keeping in mind there are many that are shire wide and can not be plotted on a map.

Rates Correction

The NSW Government has enabled Council’s across the State to amend IPART’s baseline rate peg to better suit individual Local Government Area requirements.

Wingecarribee Shire Council has this year resolved to apply for an additional 0.8% rate increase to align with its Long Term Financial Plan. The additional increase will amount to rates rising by a total of 2% in the 2022/23 Financial Year.

This amendment to rates will allow Council to better maintain vital services and infrastructure in-line with current inflation figures.
