The VPA has activated its business continuity plan in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are working remotely and this may cause some disruptions to our work program. We are working hard to limit any impacts but some unavoidable delays and postponements will occur.
The VPA works closely with councils and local communities, government agencies, landowners and developers to prepare Precinct Structure Plans (PSPs) for new communities in outer Melbourne.
Melbourne’s growth corridors were created in 2005 and the area within the Urban Growth Boundary was rezoned as the Urban Growth Zone (UGZ) to facilitate the transition to urban land. The PSP process was introduced in 2006 to better coordinate the various organisations and decisions involved in strategic planning for land zoned UGZ.
The VPA is working with stakeholders on a PSP reform agenda to introduce the next generation of PSPs that will shape the future of Victoria.
