Rating Categorisation and Sub-Categorisation Maps

Each piece of land in the Blayney Shire is assigned a category and these categories are used to determine what rates need to be paid. The Local Government Act has four main categories of rating which apply in Blayney Shire:
• Residential
• Farmland
• Mining
• Business

In addition, under Section 529(1) of the Local Government Act, Council also sub-categories that sit within the following categories:

• Residential
 
Three sub-categories:

 1. Blayney

 2. Millthorpe

 3. Carcoar

• Business

Three sub-categories:

 1.Blayney, Millthorpe & Carcoar

• Mining

 One sub-category:

 1. Gold and Copper

The maps accessible from this page in the near future will show the different categories of land across our Shire. The rates for each of these are based on the land value – set by the State Valuer General – and multiplied by the rate in the dollar for that particular category of land.

Under Section 405 of the Local Government Act, Council must have for inspection at its office a map that shows the parts of its area to which each category, and sub-category, of the ordinary rate and each special rate included in the draft operational plan applied during a period of public exhibition.

These maps are available from Council’s Administration Office at 91 Adelaide Street, Blayney. We also have them published on this webpage - https://maps.blayney.nsw.gov.au/intramaps80public/default.htm - Please select the Rates option under the Module Menu
