Levy Ramps Up Hunter Rates from July

Hunter property owners are set to pay at least $138 extra in our rates to pay for our Emergency Services.

How much you pay depends on where you live- Newcastle residents will pay $173 extra a year , while Lake Macquarie residents will pay $158.

It’s a far cry from inner city Sydney residents though – they’ll have to fork out an extra $500 in some areas.

Previously, the levy applied to house insurance policies.
