At the 13 January 2020 Extraordinary Meeting, Council resolved to implement a number of bushfire recovery assistance measures.

Council is now offering the following assistance measures for bushfire affected residents:

  • Relief from domestic waste charges for properties where dwellings were fire damaged.
  • A rebate for water usage charges during the bush fire crisis (upon application).
  • The waiver of fees for Development Applications and associated charges for replacement dwellings if such costs are not covered by insurance or properties were not insured.
  • Hardship rates relief to extend the due date for payment without incurring interest. Extended payment terms will be offered to bush fire affected residents, self-employed RFS volunteers and affected small businesses upon application.

Further information will be provided on each of the measures as administrative processes are developed, to ensure that residents can easily access all of the assistance measures.
