Complaints about a private certifier or council
Councils must comply with the Development Act 1993 and Development Regulations 2008. If you feel that your private certifier or council has failed to comply with or violated the Act or the Regulations then you may lodge a complaint with the Minister for Planning.
A complaint must:
- be in writing
- contain particulars of the allegations on which the complaint is based
- be verified by statutory declaration , which means that the statement of claim must be witnessed by a Justice of the Peace.
Information regarding lodging a complaint about a private certifier can be found on the SA Planning Portal.
