maccas to appeal
I have just received formal notification from the Yarra Ranges Planning Department that McDonalds will be appealing council's decision to refuse their application for a McDonalds in Tecoma.
The legal team for McDonalds confirmed yesterday with our planners that they lodged their appeal in the week leading up to Christmas.
Due to the backlog of applications, this may not appear on VCAT records as yet.
Very soon all objectors to the application will receive notification of the appeal where you will be asked if you want to be a party to the appeal. This is like being an objector through the council process, so if you wish to show VCAT Tribunal Members that you object you should consider being a party to the appeal.
The application was the most contentious Yarra Ranges Council has ever considered with 1,100 objections received and 670 people attending the council meeting.
