Land Valuations

Griffith City Council currently uses valuations issued by NSW Property –Valuations with a base date of 1 July 2016.

About Land Values

If land values change by less that the council’s average increase, then you will pay more.  If your land value lowers by more than the average decrease, however, your payments will go down.

Ratepayers need to consider that the movement in land value does not reflect movements in rates charged.  Changes in land value cause a redistribution of what individual properties pay in rates with the total general yield.  The total general yield does not change as a result of changes to land value. 

A factsheet of Land values and council rates has been issued by the Office of Valuer General providing information and contact details. 


Any appeal against the property valuation should be lodged with NSW Valuer General
