Council has recently received a draft Development Plan for the land at 6230 and 6280 Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay. A previous Development Plan for the land was refused at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) in 2018. The current application seeks to address the issues raised in the VCAT decision.
Council invites the community to make submissions on the amended Development Plan prepared for the land, to help inform its decision. 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. 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 appeals to VCAT) for submitters.
If you do not have access to a computer or internet, please call 5232 9400 to make alternative arrangements.
Refer to 'Related Information' to view Development Plan documents.
Submissions should include the reference ‘DPO5 Development Plan. Submission must be made in writing giving the submitter’s name and contact address, and clearly stating the grounds on which the development plan is supported or opposed.
Name and contact details of submitters are required for Council to consider submissions and to notify such persons of the opportunity to attend Council meetings and any public hearing held to consider submissions. Submissions should be lodged by 5.00pm on 21 October 2020:
- By email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
