Electronic confirmation

Council will investigate the circumstances surrounding your claim to establish whether or not Council has any legal liability. Completion and acceptance of this form does not represent an admission of liability or a waiver of its rights on the part of Council. Your claim will be subject to investigation and the findings assessed on their own merits. Council will endeavour to respond to claims as quickly as possible. However the processing of claims is dependent on the supply of relevant information and assessment of your claim may take some time to complete.
