How to Present at VCAT
Empower the people!!! Diane, a resident, went to one of these workshops. She says they are good value, cheap and anyone can go.
These 2 hour workshops presented by EDO lawyers improve the capacity of individuals and community groups to represent themselves and to participate most effectively in a VCAT proceeding.
Attendees are given practical,legally-focused information about VCAT proceedings and hearings along with plenty of opportunity and encouragement for questions and discussion.
The program is flexible and topics can be tailored to meet the needs and interests of workshop attendees.
Topics may include:
- an overview of the Victorian Planning and Environment Law System, the Planning and Environment Act 1987, and Victorian Planning Schemes
- information about decision makers, third party rights, and appeals in the Victorian planning arena.
- a detailed look at the review body, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (“VCAT”).
