A fundamental part of the Victorian planning system is to allow people affected by a planning decision to be given the opportunity to comment on what is proposed before the decision is made. When the planning application is lodged, Wyndham City decides whether notice will be given to the owners and occupiers of the adjoining land or any other person, and how the notice will be given. This process is usually called ‘advertising’.
Lodging Your Objection
Any person who feels they might be detrimentally affected by a particular planning proposal can lodge an objection to Wyndham City. Objections must be in writing, clearly stating the reasons for the objection and outlining their view. Wyndham City will take these into consideration before making a decision. However, only objections on valid planning grounds can be considered. Please note that the following issues cannot be taken into consideration by Council such as Loss of Property Value, Commercial Competition, Type of residents that will occupy new dwellings (Tenants vs. Owner/Occupier), There are too many units in the area.
Any information submitted with this objection will be made available for public viewing, including electronically, and copies may be made for interested parties for the purpose of enabling consideration and review as part of a planning process under the Planning and Environment Act 1987. If you have any concerns, please contact Council's planning department.
A petition is considered as one objection under Section 57 (3), (4a) and (4b). The first person listed will receive correspondence from Council unless another contact is specifically provided.
