Each year Gore District residents make a financial contribution to the Council in the form of rates.

These pay for a variety of services and activities, such as the Gore Aquatic Centre and acclaimed Main Street garden plots. Rates also allow the Council to maintain our extensive infrastructural assets, such as the road you drive on each day to get to work.

Rates are the Council’s main source of revenue and its rating system is capital value-based. This means that the value of your property is used to calculate the percentage you pay for certain activities. It is not used to calculated your total rates.

We encourage people to set up their rates payment by direct debit. For those who prefer to pay in instalments, there are four due dates for each instalment. 

The due dates for the 2016/17 year are:

  • 26 August 2016
  • 25 November 2016
  • 24 February 2017
  • 26 May 2017
