VCAT is expanding its services for the Goulburn Valley community following official opening of the new Shepparton Law Courts today.
The modern facilities and space available in the five-storey new building allows the tribunal to hold more hearings and resolve a wider range of disputes.
Specially designed for use by all Victorian courts and VCAT, the courthouse is safer and embraces modern technology.
It also has interview rooms and break out spaces for use by clinical, legal and voluntary service providers.
VCAT will hold hearings in the new building two days a week - up from three days a fortnight - and is planning to increase this over coming months.
About 880 residents from this region turn to us each year to resolve disputes – mostly about renting, and products and services - and appoint guardians for family members or friends.
For more information about the official launch, see Court Services Victoria’s website.
