If you don't want your name to be searchable in the rating information database you can apply to have it withheld.
Legislation dictates that the names and addresses of all ratepayers are publicly available on the rating information database.
However every ratepayer has the right to request that the Council withholds your information from the public database. Your request must be in writing.
