Applications by an authorised Third party
A person who has been issued with an infringement fine can authorise a third party to apply for an internal review on their behalf.
Who can an applicant authorise?
An authorised third party must be over 18 years of age. An Applicant does not need to authorise another person if:
- the person acting on the applicant's behalf is their lawyer, or
- the person has a power of attorney, which is current and covers making decisions in relation to infringement matters.
There is a section within the 'Application for Internal Review' form for a third party to complete on behalf of the person named on the infringement.
The internal review process can take up to 90 days (or longer if additional information is required). Please do not pay the infringement notice during this period.
Council will contact you if the infringement notice has been withdrawn or if the matter will proceed.
Failure to pay or provide requested additional information could result in further costs.
