Department of Transport and Planning

Our challenge is to improve Victoria’s liveability with a population that is expected to almost double by 2050, while responsibly tackling climate change and protecting our natural environment, infrastructure and heritage for future generations. We manage Victoria’s planning, building and heritage systems including: developing long-term, integrated land use strategies and policies; administering statutory responsibilities; facilitating urban development; and enabling government’s infrastructure strategies and programs. The Planning group works collaboratively with local government and other key public and private stakeholders to lead programs that support Victoria’s growth and liveability, and to ensure that quality services and outcomes are delivered across the state.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the people of the Eastern Kulin Nations as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
