The Regional Victoria group delivers spatial planning solutions for housing and jobs to manage growth in Victoria’s key regional cities and rapidly growing towns within Melbourne’s peri-urban area. The team responds to record level of housing demand being experienced in many locations, by aiming to sequence growth to where there is infrastructure to support it and assist councils to maximise their planning outcomes.
Infrastructure in regional Victoria
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is working on two important projects to simplify the way financial contributions towards local infrastructure are identified and to help improve how existing contributions plans are implemented.
Collaborating with 16 local councils, the VPA is supporting the implementation of existing Development Contributions Plans through the Regional DCP Toolkit project.
