Submissions can be made at any stage of the application process up until a decision is made by Council.

Please remember that some applications are exempt from notice and decision requirements.

Council will not make a decision on the application until after the date specified in the notice.

After a submission is made

Depending on the number of submissions made, an application will be decided on by a planning officer or at a Council Meeting.

If the application is taken to a Council Meeting, you will have the opportunity to present to Council at a Question and Hearings Committee.

If you are not happy with the decision made by Council about the planning application, you may have the right to appeal a decision through VCAT.
