Rating information database

What's the Council's rates database, and how can you access it?

The rates database holds the information we use to set and assess rates. It is a record of every property in the city. Each property is also known as a "rating unit".

Details include:

  • the street address
  • rateable values
  • services available to or connected to the property
  • legal description and area of the property.

You can access this data at any time using our online search tool.
