Port Phillip Planning Scheme review

The Port Phillip Planning Scheme is being reviewed to comply with changes introduced by the Victorian Government in 2018 that seek to simplify planning schemes.

In 2018 the Victorian Government implemented changes to the Victoria Planning Provisions (VPP) via Amendment VC148. The amendment adds clarity to planning schemes by simplifying and improving their structure, function and operation, and removing unnecessary regulation. It was gazetted by the State on 31 July 2018.

Following an audit of our own Planning Scheme in 2018 Council commenced a revision of it from 2019 to draft it to the new format.
