About Disputing an Expiation
To enable the Compliance Team to review an Expiation, all disputes are to be made in writing. Our "Submission to Reveiw an Expiation" form provides details on circumstances appropriate for a review.
Please complete and forward to our offices via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail to The District Council of Yankalilla, PO Box 9, Yankalilla, SA 5203
If you were not the driver at the time the expiation was incurred, you can complete and forward a Statutory Declaration with the full name and address of the person who was driving.
Disputes should be received by Council before the payment due date on the Expiation Notice to stop a late fee being applied.
The Compliance Team aim to respond to your dispute within 10 working days. However, delays can sometimes occur. Please be assured you will receive a reply in due course. The expiation will be suspended and no further action taken until the response is sent to you.
If you have not received a response within 30 days of submitting your dispute please contact the Customer Services Team on 8558 0200.
Only one review of an expiation will be undertaken, please provide all supporting documentation with your Submission to Review an Expiation form.
