Dear customer, any building that needs to be constructed or the use of a particular premises requires, it is regulated by the local council in the area. All councils have an application form process to follow to meet the guidelines in that particular zoning area. Where zoning regulations permit the build type or particular use of a premises, and the council is rejecting that build or use, a claim may then be raised in the planning division whether it is VCAT in Victoria, NCAT in NSW, QCAT QLD, to dispute the refusal. It is a lengthy process to raise claim, but where the regulations permit, and the council has refused due to community objections, the planning regulations will provide the first basis of the grounds to dispute the same.If you have any further questions, I am pleased to assist you.Kind regards *****
