Public Notification of a Planning Permit Application


Depending on the size and possible impacts of a planning permit application, notification can include:

  • Onsite notice(s)
  • Direct mail notification to surrounding land owners and occupiers and any other person who may be affected by the proposal
  • Advertisements in the local newspaper

The notification of a planning permit application incurs fees which are payable by the applicant before a decision can be issued - see the Planning fees and charges section of the website.

Payment of planning application notification fees can now be made via Council's online payment portal.  Visit My Greater Dandenong and simply enter your planning permit application number and follow the prompts.

If public notification is required, it must be carried out for a period of at least 14 consecutive days. During this time, any person can make an objection to the proposed permit.

Advertised applications can be viewed on Council’s Online Planning Register during the period of advertising.
