Status of the planning permit application
Council is currently assessing the proposal and has 60 statutory days to decide in accordance with the Planning and Environment Act 1987. Given the complexity of the proposal and community interest, it may take time to decide the outcome of the application.
As part of the assessment process, our Statutory Planning Team will be closely reviewing and considering all elements of the application in accordance with the Casey Planning Scheme.
This may involve responding to Veolia with any further requirements or amendments that need to be made to ensure the potential for off-site impacts to local amenity, nearby residents and the local community are properly managed.
As part of the planning application process for a Transfer Station, the EPA will also complete a separate assessment as a statutory referral authority under the Casey Planning Scheme and the outcome of this will be passed on to Council to include as part of the final assessment of the planning application process.
It is important to note that in accordance with the provisions of the Casey Planning Scheme, the Council is not able to formally consider any ‘submissions/objections’ made to this planning permit application as the existing Development Plan Overlay exempts the planning permit application from public notice and third-party appeal rights.
The Hampton Park Hill Development Plan was adopted by Council on 18 July 2023. The proposal must be generally in accordance with the 2023 approved development plan under the Development Plan Overlay.
