eCPD - Webinar: Improving the Operation of ResCode

Date & Time

Wednesday, 7 Jun 2023
9:00 am - 9:30 am AEDT

This is a recording of a live webinar held on 7 December 2021

Residential development in Victoria is controlled by residential development provisions and tools. While commonly known as ResCode the provisions aren’t a separate document; they’re included in all Victorian planning schemes and the Victorian Building Regulations.

The provisions are applied through the planning permit or building permit systems, and apply to:

  • the construction of new dwellings
  • alterations and extensions to existing dwellings
  • residential subdivisions and
  • apartment developments.

DEWLP has recently released a discussion paper on improving the operation of ResCode. They are seeking comment by December 17 2021.

A new Performance Assessment Model (PAM) is proposed with the aim of providing a more clear, certain and efficient way to assess planning permit applications under Rescode.

The PAM model appears to be following the approach that if a ResCode standard is met, then the objective is met. This is seen as an opportunity to establish a more consistent model for drafting discretionary provisions across the VPP’s and remove uncertainty about their operation.

It is proposed for this assessment model to have a wider application in the planning system.

Further details about the proposal can be downloaded HERE.

SSSI hosted speakers from the Planning Reform team at DELWP, who provided a briefing on the new proposals.
