VCAT needs an inquiry/overhaul along the lines of the Royal Commissions into the financial industry. Mere individual objectors to applications by developers have no chance of winning these car space reduction battles. Developers have deep pockets and well oiled machinery to deal with said objections. Council decisions become irrelevant because VCAT has the ultimate rubber stamp. Objecting is a waste of time, money and energy and the result is always the same - more and more congestion, more disgruntled residents and weary objectors who eventually give up.
