VCAT Decisions

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) is a State Government appointed panel of experts which independently reviews planning decisions made by Councils.

VCAT conducts public hearings and considers submissions made by all parties before making a decision.

In addition, from time to time, VCAT may make orders requiring documents to be placed on Council’s website, to be viewed by parties to the dispute. Here is a link to one such order: 1 Olinda Street, Glen Waverley - VCAT hearing on 20 January 2017.

An appeal to VCAT is called an 'application for a review' and the party making the application is called the 'applicant for review'. The most common types of reviews lodged are by:

  • A person who has had a planning permit application refused. An application for review must be lodged within 60 days from when the 'Notice of Refusal to Grant a Permit' has been issued by Council.
  • A person who has had a permit approved, but disagrees with the conditions of the permit. An application for review of conditions must be lodged within 60 days from when the permit was granted by Council.
  • A person who has objected to a planning permit that has been approved. An application for review must be lodged within 21 days from when the 'Notice of Decision to Grant a Permit' was issued by Council.
  • A person who has lodged a planning permit application and is yet to get a decision from Council after 60 days (known as 'Failure to Determine').

Please find below links to recent VCAT decisions involving Monash Council. Please note: the links will take you to an external database maintained by the Australasian Legal Information Institute.
