Media interest in DCSCA's legal bill

DCSCA's media release about the decision by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT)to award $5,500 in legal costs against it generated widespread media interest.

VCAT has ordered DCSCA to pay $5,500 in legal costs to Caltex franchisee Milemaker Petroleum by 7 December 2015. Milemaker Petroleum had asked VCAT for $26,000 in legal costs. It is building a service station at the junction of Jetty Road and High Street, Drysdale, having received planning permission by the City of Greater Geelong council.

The media release (posted on this blog on 3 September 2015) led to appearances on radio stations BayFM and ABC3LO, together with articles in The Age, the Geelong Advertiser, the Independent and the Bellarine Times.

All the coverage was sympathetic to DCSCA's position and journalists asked to be told of any future developments.
