Residential Construction Rebate

If you are building a home, you could be eligible for lower Council rates.

Home builders may be eligible for lower rates once the foundation/slab is laid. This means that your rates will reduce from the Vacant Land Rate to the Residential Rate from the date the foundation was poured.

The terms and conditions include:

  • The foundation/slab must be laid between 1 July 2021 and 30 June 2022.
  • The principal ratepayer must apply to the Council in writing for the rebate prior to 30 June 2022 and only after the foundation has been poured. An application received in anticipation of the foundation being poured will not be accepted.
  • The council rates were charged at the Vacant Land Rate for 2021/22.

If you believe you are eligible for the rebate, please advise the Council in writing by either complete the online form or emailing the address below or writing to PO Box 21, Oaklands Park SA 5046, with details of the address of the property and the date the slab was poured.
