VCAT appeals

Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal appeals

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has a rigorous appeals process.

You can lodge your appeal on the VCAT website. VCAT registry staff can help you with the appeals process and answer any questions you have. 

Do I need to provide Council with anything before the appeal?

As the permit applicant, you’re required to provide Council (or the responsible authority) with a copy of the plans (and other relevant material) in electronic PDF form 20 days prior to the hearing date. 

The responsible authority then publishes the plans (and other relevant material) as soon as practicable after receiving them.

When Council is the responsible authority, we publish the plans on our ePlanning portal.
