Hesse Street, Winchelsea
Vicsmart applications are usually dealt with by a council within a 10-day timeframe. In this case an application was made to Surf Coast Shire for a car parking reduction allowing the establishment of a dental practice in the Winchelsea township.
By careful assessment of land use definitions and a thorough understanding of the planning controls we demonstrated that a permit was only required for a car parking reduction. This meant that once the council had made its assessment and considered our arguments, a planning permit was issued within 10 days – a typical Vicsmart planning permit application managed well.
