About the project

To fund the development of online video guides to help Victorians have a greater say in planning decisions being considered by VCAT.

Environment Justice Australia proposed to produce four 10-minute videos focusing on VCAT procedure and the operation of the planning and environment list, particularly for objectors.

Outcome of the project

Environmental Justice Australia completed five videos providing a step-by-step guide to running a case in the Planning and Environment List of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) using a community case study.

The videos include:
Video one: Planning decisions in Victoria
Video two: Going to VCAT
Video three: Preparing your VCAT case
Video four, part one and two: Your day in VCAT
Video four, part three and four: Your day in VCAT

Two legal resources have also been produced that provide information on how to object to a planning permit application and how to appeal a planning decision in VCAT.
