OAC > Format of Appeals

Format of appeals

For appeals under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 to be accepted, they must:

  • be in writing;
  • clearly identify the matter or decision being appealed;
  • where relevant, be accompanied by the correct appeal fee;
  • be signed by the appellant;
  • be sent to the Minister for Environment (where to send); and
  • be lodged within the time limited for that type of appeal.

The appeal will also need to clearly set out the grounds which establish why the decision being appealed against was wrong or should be changed. This should ideally include an indication as to what measures should be put in place to make the proposal environmentally acceptable.
