Appeals process

How to lodge an appeal

On occasion, there may be valid grounds for an expiation notice to be withdrawn. Prior to the Notice being withdrawn, a review must be undertaken.

A review can be initiated by completing and lodging a Submission for Review of Expiation Notice.

Download: Review of Expiation Notice Form

Who can lodge an appeal:

  • the person responsible for the Notice (i.e. in the case where the notice has been issued to a person, that person, unless otherwise nominated by way of a Statutory Declaration), or
  • in the case of a company, the person nominated by the company to be responsible for such matters on and behalf of that company.

 

What happens next?

Once the completed form has been lodged, the matter is considered by the Council's Team Leader, Regulatory Services and a decision is made in respect to whether or not the Notice is to be withdrawn.

The decision is based on the reasons and circumstances outlined in the form along with any documented evidence provided by the applicant to substantiate any claims made.

Following the review, a written response advising the applicant of the decision is provided by the Council's Team Leader, Regulatory Services.

 

What happens if I ignore an expiation notice?

If a notice remains unpaid after the due by date and the Council has not received any submission for review or request to be prosecuted then a reminder notice will be sent to the registered owner of the vehicle, which includes an additional fee.

Should a reminder notice not be paid by the due by date the notice will be referred to the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Officer for enforcement and further penalties may apply
