Are you an owner occupier?
Council is seeking information from the owners of residential properties, which is their principal place of residence and is also single residential use, within the Whitsunday area, in order to categorise properties correctly for the benefit of a lower differential general rate. Eligible parties are asked to complete the form and return it to the Council by the due date of the next rate notice.
If you are already receiving the owner occupier benefit, you do not need to reapply.
