Reintroduction of rates of 2022
The NSW Government waived Local Land Services rates for three years as part of drought support packaging, providing relief to farmers managing and recovering from ongoing drought conditions. Even though there were no rates payable during this time, landholders still received the same services.
With the improvement in state-wide seasonal conditions this year, rates are being returned to normal, allowing us to continue providing our services to the people of NSW.
Stay tuned for more information to come and updated Frequently Asked Questions.
Reach out to your local team on 1300 795 299 if you have any questions or concerns.
