Principles of a Modern Planning Scheme – Part 2: Effectively Using Zone and Overlay Schedules

August 12 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm


Through the implementation of the Planning Policy Framework and reforms to zones and overlays, the way in which planning schemes are designed to give effect to land use planning directions has changed – not significantly, but enough to think about how your scheme can be effectively drafted.

This two-part seminar considers how to appropriately draft planning scheme provisions to give effect to the Ministerial Direction on the Form and Content of Planning Schemes and have regard to the ‘entry rules’ for planning provisions outlined in the Practitioner’s Guide to Victorian Planning Schemes.

Part 2 – Effectively Using Zone and Overlay Schedules

In modern planning schemes, zones and overlays have a critical role to play in exercising discretion. In this half day course, you will learn about the architecture of the Victoria Planning Provisions and how this can be used to implement strategic plans, improve decision making and certainty and help applicants know what you want to achieve.

Using case studies and recent examples of planning scheme amendments, you will learn and understand how to draft an effective schedule, having regard to the Ministerial Direction, the Practitioner’s Guide and the parent provisions.
