(i) the authority refuses to provide a conciliation service about the issue; or
(ii) a party refuses to participate, or continue to participate, in the conciliation process; or
(iii) the parties participate in the conciliation process but do not reach an agreement on resolving the dispute; or
(b) a conciliated resolution is reached but the applicant reasonably believes the other party has breached the conciliation agreement.
(2) This section does not apply to an urgent application.
