Valuations & Objections

The Council has adopted the valuations made by the Valuer-General as provided to the Council for 2018-2019. If a ratepayer is dissatisfied with the valuation made by the Valuer-General then the ratepayer may object to the Valuer-General in writing, within 60 days of receiving the notice of the valuation, explaining the basis for the objection, provided they have not:

  1. Previously received a notice of this valuation under the Local Government Act 1999, in which case the objection period is 60 days from the receipt of the first notice, or
  2. Previously had an objection to the valuation considered by the Valuer-General.

The address of the Valuer-General is:

State Valuation Office
GPO Box 1354


Ph: 1300 653 345

Please note that the Council has no role in the valuation of a property.  It is also important to note that the lodgement of an objection does not change the due date for the payment of rates.

Further information on property valuations can be found at Department of Premier & Cabinet Property Valuations

Objection to Land Use

Natural Resource Management charges imposed by the South Australian Government are based on various Land Use Categories. Should you have any reason to believe that the Land Use Category applied to your account is incorrect, you may lodge a written objection with Council outlining the grounds upon which your objection is based.  Objections must be submitted to Council within 60 days of receiving your first notice.

Rates are still due and payable by the due date even if an objection has been lodged.
