We are pleased to advise the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT) will open to the public on Monday 30 March 2015.
The Statutes Amendment (SACAT) Act 2014 has now become law, after being passed by Parliament in the last week.
As a result of Parliament's decision, work currently done by the following bodies will transfer to SACAT on its opening:
Residential Tenancies Tribunal
Housing Appeal Panel
Also part of this first stage will be:
appeals currently made to the District Court on Guardianship Board and Residential Tenancies Tribunal matters
appeals currently made to the Supreme Court on land valuation matters
Other work will be transferred to SACAT in stages over the following couple of years.
SACAT will be located in the Adelaide CBD on Pirie Street and the ABC Building in Collinswood. A range of measures are also being put in place to serve users from regional areas including hearing matters in suitable local venues and providing options such as video conferencing and teleconferencing.
