What are the key amendments to the SWRRIP?

The SWRRIP now includes key waste flow and projection information contained within the seven Regional Implementation Plans. This information collectively provides a more comprehensive picture of Victoria’s waste flows, capacity gaps and regional infrastructure priorities, and is used to inform a summary of overall opportunities to increase recovery in Victoria. The SWRRIP now includes updated and new ‘actions’ that better reflect the range of activities in Regional Implementation Plans.

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the link between land use planning and waste and resource recovery infrastructure planning in Victoria. It also outlines recent changes to the Victorian Planning Provisions, requiring the SWRRIP and Regional Implementation Plans to be considered in relevant local land use planning decisions. Additional information on ‘hubs of statewide importance’– including hub descriptions and the process of review, is also included.

  • Clarity on future hazardous waste infrastructure planning
  • Clarity on incineration infrastructure. That using this infrastructure, as a means of waste disposal, is not considered part of Victoria’s waste and resource recovery system (unless for hazardous material, human health, emergencies etc.)
  • Updates on guidance for decision makers to consider the SWRRIP and Regional Implementation Plans
  • Updates information on the SWRRIP’s supporting strategies – markets, organics, education, investment facilitation and data.
