There are three types of decisions that can be made on a planning permit application.
Issue a planning permit
If your planning permit application is successful you will be issued with a planning permit and you can commence your land development or use project.
However, a planning permit is always subject to specified conditions that must be met.
Issue a Notice of Decision to Grant a Planning Permit
If there are objections to your planning permit application then Council can only issue a Notice of Decision to Grant a Permit.
The Notice of Decision to Grant a Permit is not a planning permit. It is a legal notice that states that Council supports the application if the land use or development meets certain conditions. These conditions are explained on the notice.
Council sends a copy of this notice to all concerned parties.
Refuse to issue a planning permit
If Council considers that the land development or use proposed in the planning permit application is not acceptable, it will refuse to issue a planning permit.
The reasons for the refusal are listed in the notice. All concerned parties will receive a copy of the notice.
Appeal to VCAT
Objectors and applicants can appeal to VCAT to review Council planning permit application decisions
