The Local Government Act 2012 sets out the principle role, functions and objectives of councils. Part of the role of council is to act as an informed and responsible decision maker in the best interests of the community.
As part of council's open, responsive and accountable governance some decisions made by councils are reviewable. A reviewable decision is one that an adminstrative review committee will review if a community member brings to council’s attention a substantial reason as to why the decision should be reviewed.
A reviewable decision may include a correction to the rates assessment record (section 154 of the Act). For example, a community member may request a correction of the rates record due to an incorrect allotment number.
A reviewable decision can also include a request to council to reconsider a regulatory order (section 196 of the Act). A regulatory order is an order from council for a community member to take specific action to do something, or stop doing something. For example, council may require action to reduce the number of dogs kept on a property. This decision is reviewable upon the community member’s request.
A person may request in writing the suppression of their personal details from publicly available material (section 201 of the Act).
