Overview

‘Conducting an Internal Review’ is a 2-part program.
 

 

Part 1
Gives participants an ‘overview’ on how to conduct internal reviews pursuant to Section 270 of the Local Government Act 1999. It will include all issues that should be considered and addressed as part of the Section 270 process. The program will examine relevant legislative previsions and discuss the Ombudsman’s recommendations arising from his audit of Council’s internal reviews of council decisions procedure. All aspects of Section 270 internal reviews will be discussed including merits review, process reviews, procedural fairness, sufficient interest, use of panels/committees, vexatious applications and circumstances when a council may refuse to deal with a Section 270 internal review application.
 

 

Part 2
This program is an interactive workshop. Participants will work through a hypothetical Section 270 application considering the points below and prepare a report on the results.
  • Whether the application is frivolous or vexatious;
  • Whether the applicant has a sufficient interest;
  • How to conduct the internal review;
  • What information should form part of the internal review
  • Who should be the reviewer;
