Object to a planning application
Have your say
If you’re concerned that you may be affected by a planning application, or want to show your support, you can have your say about what is proposed by lodging a submission.
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.
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.
