Planning Scheme Amendments Online

Planning Scheme Amendments Online is changing

Planning Schemes Online home page We are phasing out the old Planning Scheme Amendments Online website and replacing it with a new, modern service that is fully integrated into Planning Schemes Online.

Information about planning scheme amendments can now be found through the Amendments tab on Planning Schemes Online.

The new amendments section in Planning Schemes Online offers improved page layouts and search features, including the means to search by planning scheme, amendment status, amendment type, a specific date period or keywords.

Planning Scheme Amendments Online provides up to date information on the status of amendments to all planning schemes in Victoria and the Victoria Planning Provisions (VPP). It allows you to view amendment documentation at the exhibition and approval stages of the amendment process.

Types of amendments

Planning schemes are amended on a regular basis. A planning scheme amendment may involve a change to a planning scheme map (often a rezoning) or a change to the ordinance or written part of the scheme or both.

Amendments can be:

  • C amendments (changes to one planning scheme only)
  • GC amendments (changes to more than one planning scheme)
  • VC amendments (changes to VPP and planning schemes)
  • V amendments (changes to VPP only).
