Updated information about charges will be available on this website from that date.

The increased rate of GST is being absorbed on some charges, including on-street parking. Parking fines, which do not attract GST, will also remain unchanged, though towing fees will increase.

On Thursday 30 September the Council won't be accepting consent or licence applications after 4.00pm, to allow time for applications received that day to be processed at the old rate of GST.
