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.
