On 6 April 2022, the Office of Local Government (OLG) announced new ‘Guidelines for additional Special Variation (ASV) process for 2022-23’ under circular 22-07. This replaces previous ASV circular 22-03 issued on 7 March 2022.

IPART will:

  • Accept applications until 29 April 2022
  • Publish applications to enable community consultation for a period of at least three weeks; and
  • Notify councils of its decision no later than 21 June 2022

We have published an updated information paper and application form for the ASV process to address the assessment criteria under circular 22-07. These replaces the information paper and application form that we published previously on 28 March 2022.

The information paper contains details about how IPART will be assessing the applications, information requirements from Council’s and the timeline for the ASV process. We are not able to accept applications through our online portal until 9 April, however all applications must be submitted through the portal. Please email us at to receive notifications when the applications portal is live.
