Major reforms to the Victoria Planning Provisions – VC148 gazetted

Amendment VC148 was gazetted today.

This amendment introduces changes to the Victoria Planning Provisions (VPP) and all planning schemes arising from the Victorian Government’s Smart Planning program. The program aims to simplify and modernise Victoria’s planning policy and rules to make planning more efficient, accessible and transparent.

This amendment represents the most significant reform since the creation of the Victoria Planning Provisions in the 1990s, and will have an immediate and lasting effect on all planning schemes.

Hansen Partnership’s team of planning experts are reviewing the changes and will soon provide a breakdown of what these reforms mean for you.

In the meantime, you can access a summary of changes including frequently asked questions via the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
