We issue works approvals for the development of industrial and waste management activities that could impact the environment. An EPA licence allows a business to run certain activities at a licensed premise.

Works approval applications and some licence applications are open to public comment for 21 days. EPA advertises works approval applications in a state-wide newspaper. You can also view them at:

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

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

Information about applications is also available on Engage Victoria.
