Metropolitan Planning Levy

On 1 July 2015, a new Metropolitan Planning Levy under the Planning and Environment Act 1987 was introduced by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

Payment of the levy must be made prior to making a planning permit application for developments valued at over $1,029,000 (current threshold for 2017/2018) within metropolitan council areas, of which the Mornington Peninsula Shire is part of.

The levy rate is set at $1.30 per $1000 (or 0.13% of the whole value of the development) for affected developments. For example, if the estimated cost of development for a planning permit application is $1,500,000, then the MPL payable would be $1,950 ($1,500,000 divided by $1,000 = $1,500 then $1,500 x $1.30 = $1,950)

If required, the levy must be paid to the State Revenue Office to receive a levy certificate. Mornington Peninsula Shire, as a responsible authority within the Melbourne metropolitan area are required to check that a valid levy certificate is submitted with a planning permit application if required. We are unable to accept any applications for development that do not come supplied with a levy certificate (if required). 

Further information, including how to apply for a Metropolitan Planning Levy certificate, can be found on the State Revenue Office website.

Planning Certificate

The Minister for Planning is the responsible authority for delivering Mornington Peninsula Shire planning certificates. All applications for planning certificates must be lodged with LANDATA. Planning certificates do not show the locations of zone boundaries or additional site specific controls that may apply to some development requirements. It is therefore important to check the Planning Scheme or contact the Planning Services Unit on 5950 1010.
