Redland Council Budget 2011-2012

The Redland Council Budget 2011-2012

Redland Council Rates up 6.09%

Mayor Hobson said the average rating increase across the Redlands this year was 6.09 per cent, which was under the local government CPI of 7.5 per cent.

“In dollar terms, it means 97 per cent of mainland residential property owners will pay less than $3 a week more – in fact 88 per cent will actually pay less than $2 a week more.”

How this compares with our neighbours:

11.31% Ipswich
6.09% Redland
7.28% Gold Coast
1.1% Brisbane

Redland Water Charges up by 7.3%

Allconnex 2011/12 Water charges will increase by 3.6 per cent for all customers, not just residents and small businesses in 2011/12, extending the State Government CPI cap to all customer bills.

However, increases in State Government bulk water charges will result in an overall price increase in household bills of between 6.6 per cent and 7.3 per cent in 2011/12 depending on the council area.

How this compares with our neighbours:

Redland is at the top end with the 7.3% increase
Gold Coast is at the lower end with the 6.6% increase
