Submissions on the proposed changes have been extended from Tuesday, 5 May 2020 to Tuesday, 2 June 2020.
The Victorian Government has prepared a suite of proposed statutory instruments that will amend the Victorian Planning Provisions and Minister’s Direction No.1 ‘Potentially Contaminated Land’ to integrate the legal changes relating to contaminated land as envisioned by the soon to be amended Environment Protection Act 2017 (Vic).
The draft statutory instruments are relevant to statutory planning, strategic planning, land development, land management, site remediation and environmental contamination assessment and auditing.
The proposed amendments appear to be a rollover with necessary amendments rather than a bold reform resolving long-standing gaps identified by successive Victorian Government reviews.
In our opinion, this is a missed opportunity. Submissions on the proposed changes have been extended from Tuesday, 5 May 2020 to Tuesday, 2 June 2020.
Members of our Government, Planning & Environment team have identified important considerations and provide a high level analysis.
