Approved Planning Policy

The Approved Planning Policy has been developed to provide a consistent and transparent state-wide approach to protecting the department’s transport planning by providing a framework for identifying and protecting it through the state and local government planning systems.

The policy articulates planning categories which denote the level of protection for planning and how it may be used externally and in the development assessment process. Implementation of the policy will provide clarity around public expectations for state transport infrastructure planning and delivery including land requirements.
