Vehicle Concession Cut Campaign

News Update 3 March 2017

In early January 2017 the Department of Transport advised Local Governments that effective from 1 July 2017 the vehicle licence concessions currently offered will be discontinued meaning that Local Government will be required to pay vehicle registrations in full.

The State Government’s decision to cut vehicle licence concessions for Local Governments will cost the sector up to an additional $10 million per annum.

These cuts will affect all WA Local Governments, not just on their vehicle registrations each year but also on State stamp duty charges as vehicles are replaced over time.

The City of South Perth has joined the campaign to have this decision reversed immediately in light of the impact it will have on all Local Governments and their communities.
