What do Planning Applications say about the Victorian Government?

Melbourne-Sky-Line

Victorian

city planning applications since December 2010 have been released to the public by Planning Minister Matthew Guy.

"The release of these reports show that the public service provides professional and objective advice and that the government takes this advice when approving new structures," the Minister said.

The Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure (DTPLI) produces assessment reports for permit applications in the central city area.

Their reports include a recommendation as to whether a planning permit should be issued and the conditions that should be included in a permit.

According to the government, an analysis of the documents shows:

  • All permits approved in the central city area were also recommended by the Department for approval;
  • The City of Melbourne has supported more than two thirds of all approved projects. The council supported 46 permits out of 70 approved applications.
  • No permit has been approved where the departmental recommendation was to refuse a planning permit. The Minister has refused a number of permits despite approval from the Department.
