When applying for a planning permit associated with a proposed licensed venue, some Councils in Victoria require certain information in order to properly assess your application against the relevant planning scheme and other controls in their particular area. To ensure that your application is processed in the shortest possible time frame, it is important to include all required information specific to your local government authority.
