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 Hearing at which the independent Panel will consider submissions has been scheduled for the week commencing 14 June 2021. Please note that these dates are only preliminary dates and are 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. 

If you have any questions regarding the Panel process:

Following the panel hearing, the independent Panel will prepare a report for consideration by Council. Council must make this report publically available within 28 days of receipt. 

Council officers will review the Panel report and prepare a report for consideration by the UPSC with recommendations. Council is not required to accept the Panel’s recommendations and may resolve to make different or additional changes to the amendment.
