VicSmart planning applications

How are VicSmart permits different to other planning permits?

Applications made through the VicSmart permit process do not need to be publicly advertised and planning decisions must be made within 10 business days.

What types of work can be covered by VicSmart permits?

VicSmart may be used for:

  • minor subdivision
  • buildings and works
  • tree removal and lopping
  • small advertising signs
  • car parking and loading bay waivers.

Speak to us to see if you could use this fast-track process.

Applicants who undertake this process will still have a right of review at VCAT if their application is refused.

You can read more about VicSmart at the Victorian Government Planning website.
