Targeted rates are used to fund work that has a local benefit and ensures the people who benefit for that service will pay for it. This approach makes it clearer to everyone where their money is being spent.
Targeted rates will depend on where your property is in the region and are set either on a uniform basis where the cost is the same for everyone, or differentially. A Differential rating is where each property is charged based on how your property is identified in our funding impact statement
Targeted rates may also have different categories applied based on the scale of the benefit your property is receiving. The degree to which a property benefits from a project or service will determine which category of the Targeted rate will apply. Properties that benefit more from a project or service will pay more.
