In accordance with this resolution, Council has written to the Minister for Planning requesting appointment of an independent Panel to consider the submissions. Council is now awaiting the appointment of the Panel. 

The Panel Directions Hearing has been scheduled for the week commencing 30 September 2019. The purpose of the Directions Hearing is to clarify administrative and procedural matters of the Panel Hearing.  

The Panel Hearing at which the independent Panel will consider submissions has been scheduled for the week commencing 18 November 2019. Please note that these dates are only preliminary dates and may be subject to change. 

The panel hearing process is organised by Planning Panels Victoria who will write to all submitters to participate in the Panel Hearing process. As a submitter you will have the opportunity to appear before the Panel in support of your submission. You can provide further written submissions to the independent Panel, if you are unable to attend.
