COURT OF REVISION

The Court of Revision is an appeal body established under the Drainage Act. 

The Act sets out a democratic process for constructing new drains or improving existing drains.  The basic premise is that property owners who benefit from a new or improved drain should pay their share toward the cost of construction.  

Members of the Court of Revision may hear appeals on three grounds:

  • Land or road has been assessed too high or low
  • Land or road should have been assessed but has not
  • Due consideration was not given to the land's use

The Court of Revision hears these appeals and decides whether they are valid. 

Members must conduct themselves fairly and without bias. 

The Court of Revision only has authority to change the schedule of assessments.  Members cannot make changes to the technical aspects of the report.
