Victoria’s Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has created a new online resource library. The DELWP website notes:

You can now search for current and archived planning documents. With the new tool anybody can search for and find a wide range of planning publications and resources published by the Planning Group within DELWP. With future enhancements already planned, the resource library will prove to be a valuable tool for the planning community.

At the time of writing there were 153 resources available including (but not limited to):

  • Templates for planning-related agreements;
  • Planning permit activity reports – monthly, quarterly and annually;
  • Standard forms for local government and other authority procedures;
  • Planning issues, papers and land use studies;
  • Research results;
  • Applicant guides to VicSmart;
  • Fact sheets, technical guides and practice notes for planning;
  • Policies and guidelines including State-level strategic planning documents;
  • Consultation documents on State-level planning matters;
  • Population bulletins;
  • Localised planning statements and regional growth statements;
  • Green wedge management plans.

The library provides a useful “go-to” resource for practitioners, particularly in preparing reports associated with planning permit applications where state or local policy refers to or incorporates the types of documents included in the list above.
