The Victorian Planning Authority proudly acknowledges Victoria’s Aboriginal community and their rich culture and pays respect to their Elders past and present.

We acknowledge Aboriginal people as Australia’s first peoples and as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and water on which we rely.

We recognise and value the ongoing contribution of Aboriginal people and communities to Victorian life and how this enriches us.

We embrace the spirit of reconciliation, working towards the equality of outcomes and ensuring an equal voice.

GAA Business Plan 2009-2010

The Victorian Government has continued with its planning reform agenda with the announcement of its major planning update Melbourne at 5 million. This policy will have a significant impact on planning in the Growth Areas and will help us in our efforts to maintain a steady supply of affordable housing.
The GAA has played a significant role in identifying suitable land to be brought into the Urban Growth Boundary and co-ordinated a broad consultation program for landholders in the areas where land has been under investigation. The GAA will continue to drive planning reforms in the coming year, including, once the legislation is enacted, the implementation of the Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution which will see a proportion of the value uplift when land is rezoned for urban development being channelled into critical infrastructure
and community services.
The implementation of the GAA’s recently completed Precinct Structure Planning Guidelines will also help underpin higher quality, more sustainable development across new suburbs in the growth areas.
