Practice Note PNPE9 will have major consequences for any permit applicant seeking to amend plans in a VCAT proceeding.

In particular:

  • amended plans need to be served at least 30 business days prior to the hearing date (which will require plans to be mailed out 33 business days prior), and
  • there are a set of matters which VCAT must have regard to in deciding whether to allow the amendment application.
