Smart Planning is a reform program to make Victoria’s planning system more efficient and accessible.

Over the past 20 years, multiple reviews of the planning system have identified ideas and areas for improvement.

Smart Planning aims to address the issues inherent in the planning system by simplifying planning rules and delivering a suite of modern digital tools.

Stage 3 of the program starts in July 2018 and will build on those initiatives already delivered.
