On 26 October 2018, Amendment VC 154 (‘Implementation of the integrated water management reforms) came into effect which implements initiatives from Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 and Water for Victoria – Water Plan to enable the planning system to better manage water, stormwater and drainage in urban development. In essence, Amendment VC154 will better support state, regional and municipal governments on coordinating integrated water management.

In light of this change, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) will be holding several training sessions to provide information and guidance on the changes introduced by Amendment VC154 for industrial, commercial and multi-dwelling developments.

Sessions will be held in Traralgon (19 November), Ballarat (23 November), Bendigo (30 November) and Melbourne (7 December). For more information on each of the above sessions and to register your attendance, please click on the links below.
