Mosman Park ratepayers were not given a chance to protest this year’s rates rise before it was locked in this week because of of a quirk in the town’s rating strategy. Rates for the small western suburbs council will increase 4.1 per cent universally, the council confirmed on Tuesday night. A spokesperson said there was no requirement for public notice or a three-week advertising period as prescribed to other councils because Mosman Park does not use differential rates for commercial and residential properties, or vacant land.

Four days into the new financial year, Cottesloe and Cambridge councils are yet to release any information about rates. “A number of budget workshops have been held and discussions are ongoing, more details will follow as we progress through the final stages of this process,” a Town of Cambridge spokesperson said. Inflation is being cited by most councils as the primary reason why rates must rise this year. The City of Nedlands is advertising an average 9.5 per cent increase, which is believed to be one of the highest in the metropolitan area. Mayor Fiona Argyle said Nedlands was now needing to play catch-up in order to pull the money required for a number of projects. The Town of Claremont is also midway through its advertising stage, proposing a rise of 5.5 per cent after a jump last year of 3.5 per cent. Subiaco and Peppermint Grove have already settled on lower-than-average increases of 1.9 per cent and 2.5 per cent respectively. Even though the financial year starts July 1, local governments have until August 31 to propose, advertise and adopt their annual budget and the rates that underpin it.
