Finance: VARIATION OF LOCAL PROPERTY TAX - Notice of consideration of setting a local adjustment factor

Closed 15 Sep 2023

Opened 24 Jul 2023


The Council provides a broad range of services to residents, businesses and visitors to the County. These services are funded from income from Commercial Rates, grants, Local Property Tax and other income generated locally such as parking, housing rents, planning fees etc

Services such as parks, maintenance of cycle ways, roads and footpaths, beaches, street lighting, housing, libraries, environmental and economic development are funded from LPT Income. In addition, a proportion of the cost of providing social housing is also funded from LPT income.

LPT charges for 2024 will be based on the valuation of properties on 1st November 2021, as notified to Revenue.   

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council can increase or decrease the basic rate of Local Property Tax for properties in their area by a maximum of +/-15% or leave it unaltered.

In 2023 the LPT basic rate was reduced by the maximum permitted ie 15% resulting in a reduction of €8.6m of LPT income available to the Council to fund services. If the basic rate of LPT is reduced for 2024 a similar loss of income available to fund services will result.

Why your views matter

The Council will meet on 9th October 2023 to decide whether to vary the basic rate of LPT for 2024.

The options available to the elected members are

  1. Decrease the rate between 1-15% below the basic rate or
  2. Increase the rate between 1-15% above the basic rate or
  3. Leave the basic rate unaltered.
