In December 2017 the Minister for Planning has appointed an Advisory Committee ("the Committee") to review and recommend improvements to land use terms and their definitions in Clause 74 of the VPP. This is part of the Smart Planning program.

The Victorian Government initiated the Smart Planning program to reform and modernise the Victorian planning system. The aim of the Smart Planning program is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the operation of planning schemes.

Following public consultation its the Discussion Paper, the Advisory Committee submitted a final report in May 2018.


Submissions closed at 5.00pm on 3 April 2018.
