Unimproved Value (UV) Review 2017

The City of Swan’s ‘Unimproved Value (UV) Rate Review 2017’ has been deferred until after the State Government’s review of the Local Government Act 1995 (the Act) has been legislated.

Once this is complete, the City will prepare a comprehensive report on the possible impact of the new legislation on the City’s UV rate review for Council to consider. However, the timing of this will not be known until the review and legislation of the Act has taken place.

The City will officially notify affected UV rated property owners, relevant stakeholders and Government agencies of Council’s decision in the New Year and will be kept up to date with any progress.

In the meantime, landowners can still request a review of the method of valuation if they believe the predominant use of their land has changed, as per the current legislation. You may request a review of valuation by submitting a Land Use Declaration Form(DOCX, 40KB) to the City. Forms can be submitted via email to swan@swan.wa.gov.au or by post to City of Swan Rates Department, PO Box 196, Midland 6936. 

For more information on this, or if you have any further questions regarding the UV rate review, please contact the City on 9267 9267 or email swan@swan.wa.gov.au.
