Planning for Schools

A comprehensive approach to planning for all schools is needed in growing areas.

Government Schools

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) works closely with the Department of Education and Training (DET) to plan for government schools.

Non-Government Schools

The VPA is committed to planning for non-government schools, which account for around 30 per cent of student enrolments in Victoria. For more information, refer to PSP Note – Non-government Schools (PDF) here.

Growth Areas Infrastructure Contributions and Schools

It is recommended that schools, developers and landowners engage with the State Revenue Office and the VPA before making decisions relating to school sites within the Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) area to ascertain if they meet the requirements of the excluded events relating to schools.
