The guide includes:

  • best practice guidance supported by evidence including Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal cases
  • explanation of the components of a planning permit and a model planning permit
  • instructions for drafting conditions by identifying and assembling the what, when and how
  • 130+ model conditions on a variety of topics that can be copied or modified for inclusion in permits.
