Overview

The Victorian Government has amended the Planning and Environment Act 1987 to recognise and safeguard Victoria’s distinctive areas and landscapes. The Macedon Ranges region is the first distinctive area to be recognised.

The new legislative reform is a key milestone in the Victorian Government’s commitment to deliver protection for the Macedon Ranges and the first step towards implementing the Plan Melbourne 2017–2050 commitment to strengthen planning protection for our distinctive landscapes and valued non-urban areas.

Together with a new Localised Planning Statement that includes designating long-term settlement boundaries for townships in the region expected to grow, it will better protect and enhance valued natural and rural landscapes.

The Planning and Environment Amendment (Distinctive Areas and Landscapes) Bill came into operation on the 30th May 2018.
