The Amendment Tracking System (ATS) is a new digital tool supporting the implementation of the Victorian Government’s Smart Planning program.
Before the introduction of ATS, council planning scheme amendments were drafted and maintained using word processing software and relied on the manual input of forms. It is a lengthy and inconsistent method, without systems in place to validate or control data.
ATS takes the process online, providing a digital tool to support the statutory processing of amendments and the publishing of planning schemes. ATS will:
- enable faster, more efficient and accurate amendment of planning schemes by providing planning authorities such as councils with a central place to generate and process planning scheme amendments
- create a central system to store, amend and publish planning schemes online
- improve accessibility to a greater range of planning information for community, industry and local government.
The authoring component of ATS enables planning authorities to draft, amend and publish amendments to planning schemes. Planning schemes are being migrated to ATS via a monthly rollout.
A range of ATS Authoring resources, including user guides, how-to videos and ATS training documents are available on our ATS Authoring resources web page.
