Rights of Appeal

Rates or charges

Under Section 184 of the Local Government Act 1989, a person who is aggrieved by a rate or charge has a right of appeal to the Country Court (within 60 days after first receiving written notice of the rate or charge).

Special rates and charges

A person may apply to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) for a review of a decision of a Council imposing a special rate or charge on that person. Any such appeal must be lodged within 30 days after the issue of the notice to the person of the special rate or special charge (section 185 of the Local Government Act 1989).
