Today as part of my delegated duties for Maroondah City Council I attended the Municipal Association of Victoria Melbourne 2030 Councillor Reference Group. The councillor reference group provides a forum to receive updates from State Government decisions and reviews that will affect local government as well as provide updates on Melbourne 2030.
The first meeting for 2006 focused on the planning permit streamlining process currently being undertaken by the State Government. The review is designed to investigate the streamlining of the planning permit process.
