Local Councils MUST offer Procedural fairness in dealing with any person whose interests, rights, or liberties will be affected by the decision. (see Minister for Immigration and Border Protection v WZARH (2015) 256 CLR 326, per Kiefel, Bell and Keane JJ)
What happens if there is a breach of procedural fairness?
A breach of procedural fairness is a legal error and may affect the validity of a decision where it has deprived the affected person of a successful outcome. An affected person may challenge a decision on the basis that the decision‑maker failed to afford procedural fairness.
An example of Procedural Fairness.
A review of a decision should not be conducted by a person with a perceived bias or interest in the decision.
