Tribunals in metropolitan Melbourne are currently continuing to operate at reduced capacity to comply with the first and second steps in the Victorian Government’s Road Map for Reopening. As such, we are experiencing some delays. However, where appropriate, we are able to mark applications as ‘urgent’ and have them dealt with more quickly.
Hearings and directions hearings are currently being held using Webex.
Tribunals in Regional Victoria are still processing all applications and conducting hearings and directions hearings via Webex.
The Tribunal has advised that the third and last steps of the Road Map should allow the Tribunal to resume its operations fully in both Metropolitan Melbourne and Regional Victoria, including the possibility of listing in-court hearings. We expect that this will mean an improvement in processing times for applications.
