Our Commitment

The City of Mitcham is committed to providing quality Customer Service. We therefore invite and value your comments and feedback as an opportunity to continually improve our service.

All suggestions and complaints are opportunities for us to do things better.

The City of Mitcham has a Complaints Management Policy which explains the complaint resolution process and the principles we apply when managing your complaint.

The complaint process incorporates the following steps in order;

  1. We ask that you make contact with the staff member you dealt with to immediately address your concerns and advise of the outcome.
  2. Should this investigation still not provide an acceptable resolution, the complaint may be escalated to an independent review of a decision pursuant to the Local Government Act. This has a separate policy position and process with the details provided below.
  3. Should this initial contact not provide an acceptable resolution, the complaint is then escalated within the department to a senior officer whom investigates the matter further and advises of the outcome.

Please provide your feedback through our Complaints, compliments and suggestions form or by phone (08) 8372 8888.

If you would like to request a review of a decision of Council, having had your complaint dealt with by the initial officer or Senior officer within the department you were liaising with, please visit Review a Decision of Council.

If having gone through all the above steps you remain unsatisfied with the outcome, the matter can be referred to the South Australian Ombudsman at their make a complaint website.
