VicSmart permit process

What is VicSmart?

VicSmart is a state-wide planning permit process that allows Councils to assess and decide on some minor planning applications more quickly.

Key features of the VicSmart permit process are:

  • Simplified application processing
  • No advertising of applications
  • Application information to be submitted and considered is pre-set
  • Decisions on applications mostly within 10 business days

VicSmart outlines pre-set criteria an application must meet and specific information which a council can consider.
