# Brief description In operation from
VC123 The amendment changes the Victoria Planning Provisions and most planning schemes in Victoria by amending Clause 34.02 – Commercial 2 Zone to make small scale supermarkets (up to 1800 square metres) adjoining, or with access to, a Road Zone not requiring a planning permit in the City of Greater Geelong (consistent with the treatment of supermarkets in this zone in metropolitan Melbourne). Supermarkets greater than 1800 square metres will require a planning permit in the City of Greater Geelong (consistent with metropolitan Melbourne). Other non-metropolitan planning schemes supermarkets larger than 1800 square metres are prohibited in the C2Z. Find out more about this amendment on Amendments Online 13/11/2014
VC106 The Victoria Planning Provisions (VPP) and all planning schemes are amended to recognise Plan Melbourne and Victoria’s regional growth plans by:
  • Inserting a new clause 9, which requires any references in the planning scheme to Melbourne 2030 and Melbourne 2030: A planning update Melbourne @ 5 Million (Department of Planning and Community Development, 2008) to be disregarded and requires planning and responsible authorities to consider and apply Plan Melbourne.
  • Deleting clauses 11.04-1 to 11.04-5 in the State Planning Policy Framework (SPPF), which set out planning objectives and strategies from Melbourne 2030, and introducing new clauses 11.04-1 to 11.04-6 which set out objectives and strategies taken from the vision in Plan Melbourne. Existing clauses 11.04-6 to 11.04-8 have been renumbered as 11.04-7 to 11.04-9 respectively.
  • Inserting clauses 11.06 – 11.13 in the SPPF which set out the objectives and strategies of Victoria’s eight regional growth plans.
  • Removing references to Melbourne 2030, Melbourne 2030: A planning update Melbourne @ 5 Million, the Activity Centres and Principal Public Transport Network Plan, 2010 and Ready for Tomorrow – a Blueprint for Regional and Rural Victoria from the following clauses in the State Planning Policy Framework:

VC105 The amendment implements reforms to Victoria’s native vegetation and biodiversity provisions by: Amending Clause 12.01 (Biodiversity) to reflect the new ‘no net loss’ approach rather than the previous ‘net gain’ approach. Amending Clause 52.16 (Native vegetation precinct plan) to reflect the intent of the native vegetation and biodiversity reform package; and Amending Clause 52.17 (Native vegetation) to rationalise information requirements, implement the new risk-based assessment pathways, include a simplified approach for applications under a low-risk based pathway and streamline the determination of offset requirements. Amending Clause 66.02-2 (Native Vegetation - Referral and Notice Provisions) to require the class of application in the high risk pathway as defined in the document ‘Permitted clearing of native vegetation – Biodiversity assessment guidelines’ (Department of Environment and Primary Industries, September 2013) be referred to the Secretary to the Department of Environment and Primary Industries as a recommending referral authority; and Amending Clause 81.01 (Table of incorporated documents in this scheme) to replace ‘Victoria’s Native Vegetation – Framework for Action’ with a new incorporated document ‘Permitted clearing of native vegetation – Biodiversity assessment guidelines’ (Department of Environment and Primary Industries, September 2013). The amendment also updates outdated references to the Department of Sustainability and Environment to reflect the department’s new name, the Department of Environment and Primary Industries in relevant clauses.
