VCAT Representation

Sometimes planning applications are knocked back by council or receive objections from the local community.

In this case, there is an opportunity to have a council decision reviewed by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).

Terrain Consulting Group has significant experience representing clients at VCAT. Our understanding of the VCAT process, procedures and relevant decisions ensure we can tailor your case for the best possible result on the day.

Reduce the stress of navigating the red tape of VCAT.

Often, we are contacted by developers who have had their planning applications refused or council has imposed strict conditions on a planning permit.

Even when we have not worked on the project from the early stages, we can help you understand council’s decision and help with the preparation of the appeal submission and provide representation and advocacy at VCAT.

How Terrain Consulting Group can help:

Seek a resolution outside of VCAT

Wherever possible, we will seek a resolution outside of VCAT through a mediation process by coming up with practical solutions to resolve disputes.

Understand council decisions and processes

We explain the requirements expected by councils and provide honest feedback on why your application was refused in the first place.
