A range of Council services are funded by rates - from water and roads to sports, recreation and playgrounds.

The City of Salisbury’s 2020/21 Rates Brochure offers a brief snapshot of Council's 2020/21 Annual Plan, and the way Council has strived to deliver the key projects the community has identified as priorities

Our priorities for 2020/21 are centred on bolstering the recovery of our local economy from COVID-19. This is an opportunity to invest in the features that draw people to the Salisbury region and make it a great place to live, visit and do business.

The 2020/21 year will mark the first of two years during which the $100 million COVID-19 Infrastructure Recovery Program, will be implemented. This will assist in economic recovery, employment and business stimulation. 

Key projects for this year will include the development of the Burton Community Hub, the implementation of the Paddocks Masterplan and the implementation of the Salisbury Oval Masterplan.

The 2020/21 Annual Plan is based on a 0% rate increase, (except where rates have increased as a result of improvements, a change to the land use or zoning, a change in ownership or a correction to the property value). 

Some of the priorities for 2020/21 include:

  • Burton Community Hub - $3 million
  • John Street & Church Street Revitalisation - $3 million
  • The Paddocks Masterplan Implementation - $1.3 million
  • Verge Development Program - $1.7 million
  • Salisbury Oval Master Plan Implementation - $2.3 million 
  • Road Reseal Program - $8.5 million
  • Street Tree Program - $1.5 million
  • Building Renewal Program - $1.2 million
  • Watercourse Management Works - $1.2 million
  • Little Para Catchment Native Forest, 10,000 new native trees - $0.4 million
  • Upgrades and new playgrounds - $1.5 million
  • St Kilda Masterplan – Stage 2 Implementation & Breakwater Renewal - $2.4 million
