In January 2013, the Commission made a submission regarding a planning application to build a mosque at Green St, Doveton. Casey City Council had allowed time for community consultation on the issue. The submission provided information about the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 and how it could assist Council deliberations regarding planning matters. The submission took note of Council’s duty as a public authority to give proper consideration to human rights. The submission highlighted a range of Charter rights relevant to planning applications.
