VicSmart Applications

Is your application eligible?
Ensure your application meets the VicSmart criteria. If you're unsure please visit the DEWLP website, engage a planning consultant or contact us for either written planning advice or to book a preapplication meeting.

Prepare your application
Your application should include:

  • Copy of Title (produced within the last 100 days). If you have any difficulties please call Landata on (03) 9102 0402. Alternatively, a conveyancer or solicitor can help you get a copy of title.
  • Prepare the documents required in the relevant VicSmart checklist (Plans must be at the scale of 1:100 or 1:200). Council must now seek the consent of any person (including third parties) before publishing any personal information (other than the land address relevant to the submission) due to the introduction of the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Act 2020. We appreciate your cooperation on this matter and ask that you not submit any plans or documents which contain personal information.
