Currently advertised permits

The Executive Director has requested the following permit applications be publicly advertised.

Anyone can submit a comment/representation about the application for the next 14 days from the date of advertising.

All submissions will be treated as a public document. By providing a submission you consent to its release to third parties as required by the Executive Director, in order to assist with the decision making process. Please note any written submission should clearly state the reasons for which it is being made. Signatories to petitions will not be considered as individual objectors.

When determining permit applications, under s73 of the Heritage Act (1995) the Executive Director must consider the extent to which the proposal affects the cultural heritage significance of the registered place. He or she must also consider the extent to which the application, if refused, would affect the reasonable or economic use of the registered place, or cause undue financial hardship to the owner in relation to that place. Matters such as change of use, car parking, or other planning issues are not able to be considered unless they would result in an adverse impact upon the significance of the registered place.

Submissions may be emailed to heritage.permits@delwp.vic.gov.au or posted to Heritage Victoria, PO Box 500, Melbourne, VIC 8002.

Due to the volume of submissions received, acknowledgments will not be sent.
