Victorian State Planning Fees Soar

Planning fees increase by thousands of dollars as Victorian Planning Minister overhauls the system.

Developers will pay significantly more for permits along with a range of new fee categories.

Mr Wynne, Victorian Planning Mininster, said that rate payers had been footing the bill for developers for too long. He claims this is a long awaited resolution that will ensure costs are more appropriately borne by those making planning applications. 

These new fees came into effect on the 13th of October 2016.
