The Land Valuation Board of Review was established under the provisions of the Land Tax (Rates and Appeals) Act 1963 (No 7099).
The Board of Review heard appeals against statutory land valuations and
classifications used by rating authorities; claims for compensation in respect of land acquired by the State Government or its instrumentalities and municipalities; and, for loss or damage in respect of land affected by the operation of planning schemes.
The Board also heard and determined applications under the Mines Act 1958 for the determination of compensation or purchase money in respect of land required for mining purposes.
In 1988, the possibility of a fourth division being created (within the Administrative Appeals Division VA 2659) to encompass the functions of the Land Valuation Board of Review (LVBR) was being considered. The LVBR was relocated on 4 January 1989 to the premises occupied by the Planning Division but continued to operate as a separate body until 1992.
