Cabonne landowners have been urged tocarefully read new land values notices follow-ing a revaluation by the NSW Valuer General.The State Government is sending Notices of Valuation to the owners of 7100 properties inthe Shire and Cabonne Mayor Bob Dowlingsaid it was important that all ratepayers notedtheir new land values, which are used bycouncils to determine rates.
“Land owners can lodge objections with the
Valuer General if they are not satisfied withthe new value,
” Cr Dowling said
, many people often do not realise
the impact of the Valuer General’s revaluation
until they receive their rates notice. By then itis usually too late to lodge an appeal with theState Government.
 Ratepayers have only 60 days to lodge anobjection. The final date to object is printedon the front of the Notice of ValuationCr Dowling said he was disappointed that therevaluation was announced during theJanuary holiday period, as was the case withthe previous revaluation of Cabonne in 2007.
“A lot of people are still away on holidays at
this time and announcements such as theseoften can be overlooked during this period,
he said.The Valuer General Philip Western saidproperty sales were the most important factorin determining new land values.The total land value for Cabonne Shire hasincreased from $1.566 billion four years agoto $1.676.Mr Western said the value of residential landhad increased moderately while there was aslight increase in commercial, industrial andrural land values
, the values for large, timberedgrazing properties in the east of the Shireshowed significant increases,
” he said
.The wide variation in sizes and locations of hobby farms and rural home sites across theShire resulted in a variety of changes to rural-residential values.Landowners wishing to know more abouttheir land values or the land valuation systemshould call toll free on 1800 110 038 or visitthe Land and Property Information website atwww.lpi.nsw.gov.au/valuation

aims to shape the future of Local Governmentfor a quarter of a century.The Council will meet on February 6 to discuss
the State Government’s draft Destination
Action Plan and prepare the Council’s
response to a request for feedback on theplan.Destination 2036 is one of the largestprograms undertaken in Local Government
and follows the involvement of all the State’s
councils at a summit in Dubbo last year.Local Government Minister Don Page and theDivision of Local Government have identifieda range of issues and reforms which has beenon the agenda for many years.Cabonne Mayor Bob Dowling said his Council,through its involvement with the WellingtonBlayney Cabonne Strategic Alliance, has beenactive in reform for a number of years andwould not miss the opportunity to have aninput into the action plan.
“It is pleasing that the WBC reform model
,involving strategic alliances, resource sharingand collaborative arrangements, is one thathas been identified in the draft action plan,
Cr Dowling said.
“But there are still many other issues that
need to be addressed, such as constitutionalrecognition of Local Government, funding,roles and responsibilities, a review of the LocalGovernment Act and intergovernmentalagreements.
 Cr Dowling said members of the public werealso welcome to make a comment on thedraft action plan which could be viewed onthe Destination 2036 webpage via the Division
of Local Government’s website
“I urge you to read the draft action plan and
have your say on a document that could havea significant impact on the area in which youlive,
