Role of the Advisory Committee

The Minister for Planning has appointed an independent advisory committee, known as the Residential Zones Standing Advisory Committee (RZSAC), to consider the application of the Residential Growth Zone in these areas. The RZSAC process is conducted by Planning Panels Victoria.   The role of the Committee is to:

  • Give submitters an opportunity to be heard by an independent body in an informal, non-judicial manner; and
  • Give independent advice to the Minister for Planning as outlined in the Terms of Reference.

Information about the Committee can be found on the DTPLI webpage
