Victorian Planning Authority

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is a State Government statutory authority that reports to the Minister for Planning.

The VPA was founded in 2006, originally as the Growth Areas Authority, to plan Melbourne’s new suburbs in our growth corridors. Our work has since been expanded to include planning for urban renewal in the inner and middle suburbs, as well as planning for jobs and population growth in the state’s diverse regional cities and towns.

The VPA will assist the implementation of the initiatives articulated in the long-term planning blueprint for our capital city, the refreshed Plan Melbourne. Working closely with councils, government departments and the community, the VPA’s program focuses on land use and infrastructure planning for strategically important precincts.
