Show Cause Notices or Enforcement Notices

So, you’ve done something wrong and Council has caught you. Now, what is the next step if you receive a ‘Show Cause Notice’ or an ‘Enforcement Notice’? Send us a copy, and give us call to discuss. We can usually buy some time with Council and formulate the best way forward to ensure you don’t get any fines, you retrospectively gain approval for your unlawful work, and Council are then off you back.

The worst thing you can do is leave it until the last minute because if Council doesn’t think you’ve been taking the appropriate steps to rectify the issue, they might issue you a hefty fine.
