Valuations & Objections

The Council has adopted the valuations made by the Valuer General as provided to the Council and effective 1st July 2020. If a ratepayer is dissatisfied with the valuation made by the Valuer General then the ratepayer may object to the Valuer General in writing, within 60 days of receiving the notice of the valuation, explaining the basis for the objection, provided they have not: (a) previously received a notice of this valuation under the Local Government Act 1999, in which case the objection period is 60 days from the receipt of the first notice; or (b) previously had an objection to the valuation considered by the Valuer General.

The address of the Office of the Valuer General is:


Office of the Valuer General, GPO Box 1354, Adelaide SA 5001;

101 Grenfell Street, Adelaide SA 5000


Phone:1300 653 346

Please note that Council has no role in this process. It is also important to note that the lodgement of an objection does not change the due date for the payment of rates.

Notional Values

Certain properties may be eligible for a notional value under the Valuation of Land Act 1971 where the property is the principal place of residence of a ratepayer. This can relate to certain primary production land or where there is State heritage recognition. Application for a notional value must be made to the Office of the Valuer-General.
