Building Victoria’s Recovery Taskforce.
Another seven projects have received planning approval thanks to the fast-track work led by Government’s Building Victoria’s Recovery Taskforce (BVRT).
On the BVRT’s advice, the Planning Minister is also in the process of calling in projects that have become stuck with council or VCAT.
We commend the work of the BVRT and have written to the Treasurer and Minister for Planning urging them to extend the BVRT with a mandate focussed on implementation and supporting industry through the recovery period.
We have also urged them to consider establishing a Standing Advisory Committee comprised of industry members to provide advice and feedback from the sector to inform policy responses and decisions.
