Applicants may appeal against a decision to refuse a permit or against conditions council places on a permit. You have sixty days from the date of the decision to lodge an appeal.

Objectors may appeal against a decision to grant a permit or against conditions that council places on a permit. An appeal must be lodged within twenty-one days of the date of the decision.

In both cases, the application for review must be lodged officially with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), along with the appropriate fee. Each time council notifies applicants and objectors of its decision, we include details of how to lodge an appeal.
