Local Government

Douglas Cheveralls Lawyers have substantial experience in advising and representing clients in matters concerning Local Government.

If you are being prosecuted by the City or Town in which you live for an alleged breach of local laws, we can provide you with advice so that you can decide whether to plead guilty, or not guilty, and in some cases we can liaise with the Local Government to have the prosecution withdrawn.

If you have received a notice from the Local Government and are unsure how to comply, or are unhappy with a decision made by your Local Government (for example, regarding a development application), contact Douglas Cheveralls Lawyers who have the experience and legal knowledge to assist you to make the right decision, or to deal with the Local Government on your behalf.

We have also successfully acted for Local Government Concillors in applications to the State Administrative Tribunal to set aside decisions of the Local Government Standards Panel.
