Planning and Building
Planning is a way to ensure that economic, social and environmental matters and impacts are considered and managed as places change. For example, there are different areas where houses, shops, pubs, parks, farms, factories and roads are located. Planning is how the community tries to put these different land uses and developments in the right places.
The planning process should achieve fair, orderly and sustainable land use and development outcomes.
The use, development and protection of land in Victoria is controlled by the Planning and Environment Act 1987. The Act says that documents known as “Planning Schemes” are to set out the goals and rules about the use and development of land in each local government area.
