STATEMENT ON DECISION BY INDEPENDENT PRICING REGULATORY TRIBUNAL

Wendy Lindsay MP

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) have approved Canterbury-Bankstown Council’s request to increase council rates by 36.34% over 5 years.

During this time of stress for the community, I am very disappointed that Canterbury-Bankstown Council have applied to increase our council rates by so much. It is taking money away from hardworking families when they need it most.

I would like to thank the thousands of residents who wrote to me with their submissions against Canterbury-Bankstown Council’s rate hike application. Unfortunately, the Independent Pricing Regulator still felt it appropriate to grant Council the Special Rate Variation.

I will never stop fighting for our community and I urge everyone to make their voices heard at the next Local Council election in September this year.
