News IPART REVIEW OF A RATING FRAMEWORK FOR LOCAL LAND SERVICES IN NSW

IPART has been asked by the NSW Government to conduct a review into the development of a rating framework and complementary service pricing system for Local Land Services NSW. IPART are required to develop an efficient and transparent cost recovery framework, including the proportion to be funded by Government, for Local Land Services Boards to set fees for the different services provided. IPART will present a final report to the Government by end of November 2013.

The Terms of Reference include consideration of the appropriateness of specific purpose levies and how they are determined, such as the Hunter Catchment Levy etc and any other broader and more efficient approach to establishing levies including those for natural resource management. For example in relation to the development of an NRM levy a specific task would be an assessment of the appropriate use of current levying powers in the NSW Catchment Management Authorities Act 2009, in many cases these powers are not utilised.
