Stormwater management is defined as the management of the quantity and quality of stormwater that flows off a parcel of privately owned, developed urban land.

Land within an urban area (a city, town or village) that is in the residential and business categories for rating purposes, except vacant land, will be charged the stormwater management levy. This charge can only be levied when a council provides additional or a higher level of stormwater management service. Port Macquarie-Hastings Council will use the charge to increase the level of stormwater management services.

There are no pensioner rebates offered for the annual stormwater management services charge.
