Electronic Rate Notices
Ratepayers can now receive their rate notices direct to their nominated email address. There is no charge for this service and you can check your notices at your convenience, any time.
Once your notice is ready, you will receive an email with your notice attached.
Please note that rate notices that are delivered by email will NOT be sent via the postal system.
Ratepayers who do not register to receive rate notices via email will continue to receive rate notices through the post.
The eNotices portal allows you to self-manage all your properties, send notices to multiple email addresses, and print off additional copies.
