If an applicant or resident is unahppy with a decsicion there may be an option to have the application reviewed by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).
Amended Development Plan (DPO5) – 6230 and 6280 Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay
Council at its Planning Committee meeting on 19 September 2016 deferred a decision regarding the submission of a Development Plan for the above land, prepared under the provisions of Schedule 5 to the Development Plan Overlay (DPO5) in the Colac Otway Planning Scheme. The applicant subsequently lodged an appeal to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) against the failure of Council to make a decision on that Development Plan within a reasonable timeframe.
Council at its Planning Committee meeting on 14 December 2016 again considered the DP05 and resolved not to support the application.
Although Council has now refused to support the application, the VCAT process must still continue. The initial stages of the VCAT proceedings have commenced, with a Compulsory Conference held on 19 January 2017 at which an amended Development Plan was substituted by the applicant. A copy of the amended plan can be viewed below.
That plan was subsequently amended further on 14 February 2017. This can be viewed below under the heading - Amended Plan 14/02/2017
Council recognises the significance of this site being the major entrance to Apollo Bay and is committed to ongoing community engagement and input to the planning process. Council therefore is inviting submissions from the community regarding the amended Development Plan, to help inform the decision to be made by Council at its 8 March 2017 Planning Committee meeting. It should be noted that, as there is no statutory process for undertaking public notification on Development Plans, there are also no third party appeal rights (such as going to VCAT) for submitters.
The consideration of the Development Plan at the 8 March Planning Committee meeting will provide the applicant with Council’s position regarding the revised Development Plan, allowing the applicant to make an informed decision about whether to continue with the VCAT Hearing at an Administrative Mention on 16 March 2017. The full Hearing is scheduled for three days commencing on 26 April 2017.
The amended Development Plan provided to Council at the VCAT Compulsory Conference, as subsequently further amended on 14 February 2017, can be viewed below or in person at:
- Apollo Bay Service Centre: 69 Nelson St, Apollo Bay VIC 3233
- 101-105 Gellibrand Street, Colac 3250
Should you wish to lodge a submission to the amended Development Plan, we would request that you do this by 5.00pm on 20 February 2017, to ensure that any comments can be considered in assessing the revised Development Plan and drafting the Planning Committee report. Submissions should include reference being a ‘Submission on Development Plan (DPO5) – 6230 and 6280 Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay’ and can be made in writing in either of the following ways:
