Valuations and Objections

Glenelg Shire Council uses the capital improved value to determine the general rates payable on your property. Revaluations ensure that both the Council and the State Government recognise the changes that occur in the property market, both positive and negative, and that these changes are reflected in the level of rates or land tax a property owner will pay.


A new general revaluation of rateable properties does not create extra rate income for the Council. However, the revaluation does result in the reapportionment of the total amount of rate revenue in relation to individual properties.


Commencing from 1 July 2018 the State Government has centralised valuations with the Valuer General Victoria and introduced annual valuations for Council Rate and Fire Services Property Levy. Prior to this, re-valuations were conducted every 2 years. The current values are as at 1 January 2021 and have been used for the 2021-2022 financial year in accordance with 2020 Valuation Best Practice Specifications Guidelines.
