VCAT opens tribunal in Oakleigh

A new Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has opened in Oakleigh.

The purpose-designed venue in Atherton Road will allow VCAT to handle more cases, with enhanced digital technologies enabling more efficient hearings.

People coming to VCAT in Oakleigh to resolve civil issues – primarily about consumer disputes, renting, and guardianship – will no longer have to attend a criminal court building.

Instead the new design is accessible, less formal than a criminal court, and has spaces that can be used flexibly for private discussions, mediations and hearings.

Details: VCAT Oakleigh, Level 1, 20 Atherton Road.
