Who We Are

Victorian Planning Reports publishes The Guide to Planning Appeals (GPAs) and The Guide to Planning Panels (GPPs) and provides regular editorial comment on significant VCAT decisions and Panel reports.

The Guide to Planning Appeals (GPAs) consolidates over 30 years of reported decisions into the one an easy-to-use document that identifies key planning and legal principles, precedents and issues. The document is set out in alphabetical order and under each topic the relevant legislative or planning scheme source is identified, the main issues concerning the subject are summarised and the relevant Tribunal decisions are referred to.

The Guide to Planning Panels (GPPs) adopts a similar approach and identifies the key procedural and planning issues that have been addressed in Panel reports over the past fifteen years. The GPPs is the first guide that has ever identified the more significant Panel reports and summarised key issues.

Both Guides are updated annually.

The editorial comment of noteworthy Tribunal decisions and Panel reports is provided on a monthly basis and are published in a series of volume and edition numbers. Subscribers are sent an email alert when the editorials have been uploaded onto the web site.

With the growing number of editorials, the web site also contains a past editorials menu which identifies the editorial volume and edition number, the topics in the editorials and the cases referred to.

The GPAs and GPPS s are available to subscribers in both hard and electronic copy. The hard copy is bound, divided into sections and produced on high quality paper. The electronic copy is accessed by logging onto the VPRS web site.

Subscribers have the option of subscribing to either Guide or both.
