About the Redland Ratepayer Class Action
Redland City Council (RCC) advised in March 2017 that the canal maintenance levy it imposed on ratepayers in Redland was potentially contrary to the requirements of the Local Government Act.
While the Council has refunded part of the moneys raised, Shine Lawyers have commenced proceedings on behalf of ratepayers to recover the remaining amount. Shine Lawyers consider that the RCC is liable to ratepayers for the balance of moneys raised.
The proceedings are being funded by Augusta Ventures Limited.
