State Government Planning Reform

Planning Reform

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure is working on mechanisms to implement a new planning system (the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act) in stages over the next three years. Information about this new system can be obtained here.

This new planning system will have significant implications for all Councils. One of these implications is the loss of existing Development Plans to make way for the Planning and Design Code.

Council is working hard to understand the implications of the reform for the City of Mitcham. We are aware that this needs to be done in partnership with the State Government, and through a consultative process with our community.

It is intended that this page will be updated with information on Council's activities in this space on a regular basis. Reports to Council and its Strategic Planning and Development Policy Committee (SPDPC) can be accessed here.

Relevant reports include:

  • 6 December 2016 - SPDPC - Planning Policy and Planning Reform Update
  • 28 March 2017 - Council - Local Area Planning
