In November 2017 the Minister for Planning commissioned an independent review of the planning system to identify ways to make it more efficient, open and understandable to everyone.
A Green Paper was released for public comment in May 2018 which proposed five key reform areas – strategically-led, legible, transparent, efficient and delivering smart growth. Over 250 submissions were received.
The Reform Team within the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage has reviewed the submissions and a proposed State Government response to the Green Paper is being prepared for consideration by the Minister for Planning and the Government.
Announcements regarding the content of a reform program will be made following Government's consideration.
