Fees and Charges

A complete list of the fees Council charges for the various services it provides, such as the gym at Hornsby Aquatic and Leisure Centre.

Note:  From October 2016, Council will no longer be offering refunds by cheque

As part of our continuing effort to improve the quality of services we provide to you, Hornsby Shire Council implemented a new corporate IT system in October 2016 making payments quicker and easier.  The new system will reduce processing times and speed up repayments to our customers. As part of this change, we will no longer be able to refund payments by cheque, and instead will use Electronic Fund Transfers (EFT).

Payees will now be required to provide their BSB number, Account Number and Account Name as requested.

Payment refunds will be processed weekly, and most payments will be received within 7 days.

The Fees and Charges 2016/17 (complete list) - 4.8MB will be current until 30 June 2017.

Fees and Charges 2017/18

The Fees and Charges 2017/18 - 5.4MB were adopted by Council at its meeting of 14 June 2017 for implementation from 1 July 2017.
