Planning Infringements and Compliance

Compliance action will occur when there is a clear breach of one or more of the following:

  • Planning and Environment Act 1987
  • Latrobe Planning Scheme
  • A planning permit
  • Section 173 agreement

A planning permit is usually required to start a new use of land and construction or demolition of structures.

Council's goal is to achieve compliance with the planning scheme, and any related planning permit. Compliance processes are used when evident that voluntary compliance is unlikely to be successful in a satisfactory timeframe.
