City of Newcastle (CN) indexes and adjusts contribution rates quarterly, in accordance with the Consumer Price Index (All Groups Sydney) (CPI) published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The CPI index rate is expected to rise at regular intervals and therefore the actual contribution payable is indexed and recalculated at the CPI rate applicable on the day of payment.

CPI quarterly figures are released by the ABS on a date after the indexation quarter and as a guide.

To determine the amount payable at today's rate please contact CN’s Customer Contact Centre on (02) 4974 2000.
