Concessions

Residential park resident concessions

People who live in a residential park or a caravan park may be eligible to receive a single combined concession to help with their energy, water and sewerage bills.

People who live in a residential park or a caravan park may also be eligible to receive the Cost of Living Concession.

No Emergency Services Levy (fixed property) concession is payable, as this levy is not normally charged to residents of residential parks.
