SfG Library

Purpose 

The purpose of the SfG (Streamlining for Growth) Library is to showcase various exemplar SfG funded projects to facilitate shared learnings and innovation progression.  This responds to one of the key overall program objectives being to support innovative and replicable processes.  SfG funded projects often provide guidelines, frameworks or principles that can be adopted or adapted in other planning endeavours. The VPA encourages Councils to variously refer to these projects and, where relevant, contact the document author to gain their insight and seek direction.
