The heavy workload at VCAT continues. Highlights of our latest editorial VCAT Vol 9 No 3 includes: a finding by VCAT’s president that sustainable transport policy is not relevant where there is no maximum car parking requirement and no permit trigger; bio-security risks from an outdoor recreation facility to strawberry farms in the Yarra Ranges; an unsuccessful challenge to have an urban design witness evidence dismissed; forgetting to extend a permit which scuttles a request to amend the permit; perceived detriment to the removal of a restrictive covenant – is it a lesser obstacle than previously thought?; and a failure to comply with an Instrument of Delegation amounts to a material mistake.
