What is Town Planning?

Town planning involves regulating both existing and proposed land uses, developments and subdivisions through controls outlined in the City of Greater Bendigo Planning SchemeIt aims to achieve a balance between enabling development and growth to take place and protecting/enhancing the built and natural environment.

If applying for a permit, the City’s Planning Department looks at what you want to do against these planning controls and decides if it is the right use or development for the area.

Planning is a continually changing field influenced by policy changes in response to community needs, population growth, environmental risks (such as flood and fire) and environmental conservation.
