With the new financial year, we commence a new volume series. This being Volume 7, this is the 7th year of our ‘new’ editorial service. Highlights are VCAT decisions on procedural fairness in considering planning scheme amendments; the Ravenhall landfill and the Tribunal’s jurisdiction and person’s affected; the impact of the new particular provision on Residential aged care facilities and balancing other policy considerations; and when a Dependent Person’s Unit is moveable. There is also a Supreme Court decision on whether the Tribunal got it right on applying transitional provisions. Panel highlights include three reports on significant Melbourne City planning scheme amendments on gaming, urban design and heritage.
