When a planning permit is granted, it will normally contain a list of conditions – these are specific requirements that must be met by a development or use. Some conditions relate only to the construction stage of a development, whilst others may relate to ongoing operation and must be complied with throughout the life of the development or use.
It is important that you familiarise yourself with the conditions on a permit immediately upon receipt of the permit. If you have any queries about the conditions on a permit, Council planning staff are available to answer any questions.
Notice of Decision to Grant a Planning (NOD)
If an application has outstanding objections a planning permit cannot be issued. If Council is able to support the application a Notice of Decision to Grant a Planning can be issued and is submitted to the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).
Applying to amend a permit
Applications can be made to amend an existing permit under Section 72 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987. The process of Amending a Planning Permit follows the same format as that list above. Please note any decision issued by the Victorian Civil & Administrative Tribunal cannot be amended.
