cardina shire council has just sent me my rates notice on my vacant block of land which will be built on soon. the land has been valued at $100.000 ..not alot for a block of land. i was shocked at the rates charge $718.00. i gave them a ring and asked them if it was a error .. apparently not ,they had doubled the rating on vacant land 6 yrs ago and said they charge that much to get people to build quickly i rang a neighbouring council and asked them how much they would charge they gave me a estimate of between $300 to $400. i know cardinia is expanding and needs alot of infastrucure but that figure to me in normal circumstances would be for a land and house. . has anyone else had excessive rate charge on vacant land? has land or built in the shire of cardinia? is this excessive or not?
