Latrobe City Council has received notification that the proponent of the Used Lead Acid Battery (ULAB) Recycling Facility proposed for Hazelwood North, Chunxing Corporation Pty Ltd, has made an application to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) to review the decision of Council to refuse to grant a planning permit.
Council will engage suitable representation to act on its behalf, attend the hearing as required and comply with all requests for information from VCAT.
This is now a VCAT matter, so any enquiries should be directed to VCAT on 1300 018 228 or VCAT’s website, www.vcat.vic.gov.au
Council voted to not issue a planning permit application for the ULAB recycling facility at a Special Council Meeting on 17 September 2020.
Council decided that the ULAB Recycling Facility did not meet the requirements of the Latrobe City Planning Scheme. The decision was made on planning grounds, including taking into consideration amenity impacts.
