Assessment of Planning Enquiries
Hume City Council's Statutory Planning Department is responsible for assessing planning permit applications against the controls in the Hume Planning Scheme. The Department coordinates the release of plans of subdivision, assesses Liquor Victoria notifications and enforces planning controls.
Put simply, Hume City Council manages the way in which the municipality grows and develops, from the approval of a planning permit for a residential house, to the creation of multi-million dollar industrial developments.
Members of the Statutory Planning Department give verbal and written advice on planning enquiries to customers and manage planning permit applications and associated approvals under the Hume Planning Scheme. To find out more telephone Council on 9205 2200.
For a better understanding of the planning permit process, the State Government has produced a booklet called 'Using Victoria's Planning System.' View it on the State Government Website.
