(Question No 319)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 9 June 2017:

(1) How many rateable dwellings (or dwellings/households paying rates) are in the Australian Capital Territory as at 7 June 2017 and how many are (a) single dwellings and (b) units dwellings.

(2) What is the projected number of rateable dwellings (or dwellings/households paying rates) in the Australian Capital Territory for the financial years (a) 2017-18, (b) 2018-19 and 2019-20.

(3) How many of the rateable dwellings in part (2) are (a) single dwellings and (b) units dwellings.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The rates IT system will only produce the number of rateable properties on the day the query is raised. As of 19 June there were 111,554 single dwellings paying rates. There were also 45,796 residential units paying rates.

(2) and (3) – The Government does not explicitly forecast the number of rateable dwellings. General rates revenue is set in aggregate which takes into account the expected growth in overall population.
