All Council Schemes to Change 

As part of the Victorian Government’s push to simplify and modernise our planning regime all Victorian municipal planning schemes are required to be updated to Victoria’s new format Planning Policy Framework (PPF), by June 2021.   

Moonee Valley, Golden Plains and Glenelg are some of the first to already have made the change.   

Permit applicants should expect a period of adjustment. Under the new format PPF you will no longer find the bulk of Local Policy under Clauses 20-22. Rather it will be listed under the relevant state-wide Policy in the teen-clauses.  

Take a peek at Moonee Valley City Council’s recently updated scheme for a preview of what’s to come.
