Feedback to DELWP's proposed integration of environment protection reform into land use planning

The Property Council of Australia’s Victorian Division welcomes the opportunity to respond to the proposed updates to Victoria’s land-use planning system, through the commencement of the
Environment Protection Amendment Act 2018.

We are generally supportive of the proposed changes and the supporting practice notes. However, we seek some minor clarifications and propose a number of amendments, in particular with respect to Practice Note 30. We submit that the proposed modifications will increase role clarity and provide a simplified and streamlined process for all parties.
