Concessions for hardship will only be considered by Council for rates and charges applied to owner occupied (residential) assessments and not-for-profit organisations who experience genuine financial difficulties to pay their rates and charges (financial hardship).
Where financial hardship has been determined, all reasonable steps will be taken to establish a payment arrangement or negotiate settlement of the outstanding debt with the debtor concerned prior to considering a concession.
An application for consideration must be completed on an approved form that can be downloaded here.
