A planning permit application for five two-storey townhouses in Lara has been knocked by the City of Greater Geelong.

Developers had proposed the development for 24 Patullos Road, near Six Ways, which included the two-bedroom dwellings and a common property accessway.

The land currently had a single home on it.

The council says its planning committee received six objections, with issues including neighbourhood character and overshadowing.

While changes were made, the committee has refused to grant a planning permit.

The Committee has also resolved to fight a development proposal for Corio at VCAT.

The application for Sharland Road and McHarry Court is for 108 dwellings including 48 apartments.

A decision on the permit was not made within a statutory time frame, and the applicant appealed to the planning tribunal.

The city will ask VCAT to refuse a planning permit for the proposed development.
