Infringement Appeals

Infringement_Flowchart

All infringements are issued under legislation and are required by law (section 9.13 of the Local government Act 1995) to be paid within 28 days. 

If you feel the infringement is unfair or incorrect you have the right to request it to be withdrawn.  All disputes are to be lodged in writing within 28 days of issue.  Lodge your Request to Withdraw from to the Shire by email, post or in person.  You can download the Request to Withdraw Form here. 

Your infringement will be suspended from the time your written request is received.

Only the CEO of the Shire has authority to withdraw an infringement. An investigate will take place, after which your request and the results of the investigation will be presented to the CEO for consideration and resolution.
