Objections to notices (1925 act)

Whilst other Acts allow objections to be made to the Local Authority, the 1925 Act does not seek objections or state a requirement for consideration of objections. Instead, it requires anyone who objects to the proposal to appeal to the Magistrates Court.

To appeal to a Magistrates Court, the objector would have to pay a fee and the costs of the case will be awarded against the losing party. Careful consideration should therefore be given to the 1925 Act being used.

It is important that the Magistrates Court is informed of the proposed alteration or addition of a street name under the 1925 Act.
