Council has installed 47 raingardens across the City to improve the quality of stormwater entering our waterways and help reduce the impacts of flooding. Council also supports residents who may wish to build a rain garden at home.
The Council encourage Stonnington residents to install rainwater tanks to make better use of our water resources.
Rate books for the former cities of Malvern and Prahran were prepared annually from 1856 to 1994. Malvern's rate records can be viewed at the Stonnington History Centre. DVD Rom sets of Prahran's rate records may be borrowed from Stonnington libraries. Guides in their use can also be found here.
This year, Council rates have been capped at 2.0 per cent, as determined by the State Government’s new ‘Fair Go Rates System’. This rate cap is not a rate cap for each individual property, but rather a rate cap on the total revenue for the City.
Here is your 'one-stop-shop' for all you need to know about how to calculate and pay your rates, as well as information about special rates and land certificates.

Despite recent reports of pressures impacting the recycling industry, Council can advise that, at present, this is not impacting operations in our municipality.
