The purpose of the Revenue and Rating Plan is to determine the most appropriate and affordable revenue and rating approach for the City of Melbourne.

The Revenue and Rating Plan seeks to identify each source of revenue to be included in the budget and the policy rationale / assumptions that underpin these.

The Revenue and Rating Plan is a new requirement for councils. It provides a medium-term plan for how Council will generate income over a four-year period. This plan has been compiled in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020.

The final Council Plan/Budget/Rating and Revenue Plan is expected to be adopted at the Council meeting on Tuesday 29 June starting at 5.30pm.
