EPA’s new website is under construction. It contains links to our previous site while we add information.

Public input is central to how EPA administers the Environment Protection Act 1970. We invite public comment via email or post on works approval applications and licence applications.

When works approval applications are available for public comment, EPA must advertise them in a state-wide newspaper. You can also view them at:

EPA may hold a public meeting to discuss a works approval or licence application. We must consider comments made during the meeting in our decision-making process.

Members of the public can appeal to the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) against a works approval or licensing decision.

EPA keeps information on the website after the public comment period if an application:

  • has high community interest
  • is subject to an appeal.

We call these featured works approvals.
