COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Bill 2020

The Victorian Government has introduced the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Bill 2020 which includes temporary changes to the Planning and Environment Act 1987.  The changes ensure that the planning process in Victoria can continue, despite the closure of many state and local government offices and public health measures that include physical distancing requirements.

The changes mean that planning documents previously required to be physically available to view at state and local government offices are now only required to be available for online inspection. This includes copies of planning scheme amendment documentation and submissions.

As a result, a full copy of the amendment documentation and copies of submissions received during exhibition of Amendment C161port will be available online for the duration of this amendment process and will be removed two months after the amendment has been gazetted.  Please note that all personal details from the submissions have been removed.

See the exhibited Amendment documentation on this page below.

In response to the exhibition of Amendment C161port, Council received 151 submissions.
