Dispute an Expiation

A person who has received an expiation for an alleged offence may apply to Council for a review of the decision before the due date on the original expiation.  Council will assess the request in accordance with Council's Withdrawal of Expiation Notice Policy 20.63.2.

For information on statutory declarations refer to the Australian Government Attorney-General's Department website www.ag.gov.au.

To request Council to review the decision the person must complete the Review of Decision Application 20-71-T67 and provide evidence to substantiate the information provided in the Statement of Appeal section of the form before the due date on the original expiation.

You will be advised by Council of the outcome once a decision has been made.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the appeal, you are entitled to lodge a second appeal which will be assessed by another party.  Once a decision has been made you will be notified in writing of the outcome.

Verbal requests to waive an expiation will not be considered.
