Transport and land-use planning

Amendment VC204: Updates to state planning policy for transport

Victoria’s transport needs are changing. We need to plan for increased movement of people and goods, deliver critical infrastructure and jobs via our transport system.

Delivering integrated transport and land-use planning will ensure our cities and regions are efficient, liveable and well placed to face these contemporary challenges. 

On 9 December 2021, VC204 updates the state planning policy to support a more integrated transport system that is simpler and more certain for decision-makers, infrastructure providers and the community. 

VC204The changes updated clause 18 (Transport) provisions in the Victoria Planning Provisions and all planning schemes. The amendment also made consequential changes to clauses 66.02, 65.01 and 65.02. 
 
The new provisions ensure land use planning decisions are made using clear and up-to-date information about state transport policy and the transport system, including the vision and objectives of the Transport Integration Act 2010.
 
The Act puts the transport user and how they move, rather than individual transport modes at the centre of the transport system.
 
Transport policy has been updated to include the relevant strategies and policies that have been developed by the Department of Transport and its predecessors.
