Comment on a Current Application

Anyone can make a submission about an application.  Submissions are not confidential and the name and address of the submitter may be viewed by any person and may also be included in any Council meeting agenda publicly accessible on Council’s website.

 A submission must be in writing and, if it is an objection, it must state the reasons for the objection and how you will be affected by the grant of a permit.  Council can only consider objections that are based on planning grounds (property devaluation and commercial competition are not valid grounds of objection).

  • by post to:

City of Ballarat
The Phoenix
25 Armstrong Street South
BALLARAT   VIC    3350

If posting or faxing, please use the objection form.  

If a petition or multiple signatories are lodged, Council will direct all correspondence only to the first signatory or other as nominated.

If you make a written submission, you will receive an acknowledgement letter from Council after the advertising period closes.
