Rate increases for Bellingen get green light

Rates are set to go up for Bellingen Shire property owners.

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal has given council the okay to increase current fees by 6% for the upcoming 2017-18 financial year.
That'll be the permanent base for rates in future.

The change will see households fork out an extra $63 dollars, $65 for businesses, while farmers will pay a $144 more per year.

The cash is going towards better roads for the local government area.
