Viewing planning documentation

The COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Bill 2020 is legislation covering a range of temporary measures to support the State's response to COVID-19 and enable the delivery of essential public services to the best extent during this time.

The Omnibus Bill involves key changes to the Planning and Environment Act 1987, which will allow the planning process in Victoria to continue, including:

  • Planning documentation previously required to be physically available to view at state or local government offices are now only required to be available for online inspection. This includes copies of planning scheme amendments and submissions, and planning permit applications and objections.

Requests to view planning application documentation including application information and objections can be submitted using the following form. Requests using this form can only be made for planning applications where a decision has not yet been made by Council.

If a decision has been made, you will either need to apply for a copy of planning permit information here or make a request to Council under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).

A member of our Planning Services team will be in contact with you when a request is received to facilitate the viewing of planning application documentation.
