How do Unley's rates compare?
The LGA has recently compiled a list showing the Council rates increases from 2004 to 2014. The certainly have increased to a greater extent than CPI. However, Unley compares very favourably to other Councils. In the last ten years Unley's revenue (rates plus grants and fees ) have increased by 51.6%. Comparable Councils have shown an increase of up to 97%.(Playford). Our nearer neighbours have increased by; Burnside 53%, Mitcham 62%, Norwood 72%, Adelaide 67% and Marion 73%. I believe the Advertiser will do a story on this in the near future, it will be interesting to read their take on it.
