Public Notice - Notice of Intention to Declare Special Rate and Charge - Moonee Ponds Activity Centre

At its Ordinary Meeting on 11 December 2018, Moonee Valley City Council (Council) resolved to give notice of its intention to declare a Special Rate and Charge (Scheme).
Council intends to declare the Scheme at its Ordinary Meeting on 14 May 2019.  The Scheme will be for the purposes of defraying expenses to be incurred by Council in providing funds to the Moonee Ponds Rate Levy Association (Association).  The Scheme funds are to be used to fund a part-time Shopping Centre Coordinator, promotional, advertising, marketing, business development and other incidental expenses as approved by Council and agreed between Council and the Association, all of which are associated with the encouragement of commerce, retail and professional activity and employment in the Moonee Ponds Activity Centre (Business Precinct).

The Scheme will be based on geographic criteria, having regard to the location and capital improved value of rateable properties in the Business Precinct that are used, or reasonably capable of being used, for commercial, retail or professional purposes.  Council considers that each rateable property and each business included in the Scheme area that is required to pay the Special Rate and Charge will receive a special benefit because the viability of the Business Precinct as a commercial, retail and professional area will be enhanced through increased economic activity.
The Scheme is intended to raise funds in performing functions and exercising powers in relation to activities associated with the encouragement of commerce and retail activity in and around the area the Scheme applies to.  Council intends to levy and spend $190,000 in the first year of the Scheme, which will increase by $10,000 in each year of the Scheme.  The Scheme will raise $1.05 million over its five year period, which is the total cost of performing the functions and exercising the powers associated with the Scheme. The Scheme is to be declared, and will remain in force, from 1 July 2019 until 30 June 2024.

The Special Rate and Charge will be assessed based on the following:
    a) an 80 per cent Special Rate component calculated by multiplying the capital improved value of each property by a rate in the dollar (adjusted annually);
    b) a 20 per cent fixed Special Charge component assessed as a flat charge of $68.84 in the first year;
    c) all properties not located on Puckle Street will have their rate component discounted by 20 per cent; and
    d) the Special Rate and Charge will be capped at a maximum amount of $5,000 per rated property per year.

The total amount of the Special Rate and Charge is to be collected, and will increase by $10,000 in each year of the Scheme for the remaining four years of the Scheme.
Council will levy the Special Rate and Charge by sending a notice of levy annually to the persons who are liable to pay it.  The notice will require the Special Rate and Charge to be paid in one instalment, by the date specified in the notice.  

Council will consider cases of financial and other hardship and may reconsider other payment options for the Special Rate and Charge.  No incentives will be given for early payment.

Council estimates the proportion of the total benefits of the Scheme (including all special benefits and community benefits) that will accrue as special benefits to those liable to pay the Special Rate and Charge is 100%.  This is because, in Council’s opinion, all of the services and activities to be provided with the Special Rate and Charge funds are marketing, promotion and advertising related and will only benefit those properties and businesses included in the Scheme that are used, or reasonably capable of being used, for retail, commercial or professional purposes.

Copies of the proposed declaration of the Special Rate and Charge and a plan showing the land and properties required to pay the Special Rate and Charge are available for inspection at Council’s offices, 9 Kellaway Avenue, Moonee Ponds, VIC 3039.  These will be available during normal business hours for at least 28 days after the publication of this notice.
Any person may make a written submission to the Council on the Special Rate and Charge.

In addition, an owner or occupier of land who will be required to pay the Special Rate and Charge has a right to make a written objection to the Council.  An occupier of a property included in the Scheme is entitled to object if they submit documentary evidence with the objection showing that it is a condition of their lease that they are to pay the Special Rate and Charge.

Written submissions or objections must be received by Council by 22 March 2019, 5pm. Submissions and/or objections must be in writing and addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Lancaster, Moonee Valley City Council, 9 Kellaway Avenue, Moonee Ponds, VIC 3039 or business@mvcc.vic.gov.au.

Any person who has made a written submission and has requested to be heard in support of their written submission is entitled to appear in person or to be represented by a person specified in the submission before a Council Committee on Monday 1 April, 2019 at 5.30pm at Council’s offices, 9 Kellaway Avenue Moonee Ponds.

Council will consider any written submissions and take into account any objections in determining whether to declare the Special Rate and Charge.

If you would like further information about the proposed Special Rate and Charge, please contact Nadine Muscat, Business Development Officer, Economic Development, phone 03 9243 8888 or email business@mvcc.vic.gov.au.
