VCAT appeals

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) is a Victorian state government tribunal that deals with different types of disputes, including planning permit application disputes.

When reviewing the decision of a Council to grant a new planning permit, VCAT’s role is to reconsider the whole application afresh on its merits.

VCAT decides planning applications by permit applicants, permit holders, objectors and responsible authorities involving disputes over the use and/or development of land.

You can find out more information about how to apply to VCAT and how the review process works from the VCAT website
