State Department Name Change

The Victorian State government department overseeing Victoria’s planning provisions has changed names and is now within a new Department of Transport and Planning (DTP). The name change took effect on 1 January 2023 and the DTP supports roads, public transport, and planning and land-use across metropolitan and regional Victoria. DTP was previously named Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). Other functions of the previous DELWP are now part of a renamed Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action.
