Important information before lodging your complaint of a minor breach.
Minor breaches of the Local Government Act 1995 (the Act) are dealt with by the Local Government Standards Panel (the Panel).
Minor breach complaints against a council member must be lodged through the complaints officer at the relevant local government. The Panel does not accept complaints direct from complainants.
A person can only make a complaint of a minor breach within 6 months after the breach alleged in the complaint has occurred. A complaint cannot be made after that time has elapsed.
The legislation governing minor breaches is the Local Government (Model Code of Conduct) Regulations 2021.
