Change a planning scheme

Councils can decide to amend a planning scheme to achieve a desirable planning outcome or to support a new policy direction. The process for changing a planning scheme must be followed exactly and involves anyone who may have an interest in the amendment, or be affected by it.

A planning scheme can only be changed by a formal amendment process. An amendment can make changes to all planning schemes in Victoria at once, a group of planning schemes, or only one planning scheme. All amendments must be approved by the Minister for Planning.

Amendments currently on exhibition or very recently approved can be viewed from the Documents on exhibition page. Current or recently approved amendments can be viewed on Planning Schemes Online.
