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.
