Local policy: some advice

Des Eccles

Planning training: some notes

about local policy:

  • should not be regulatory; to apply as regulation is improper

  • should be consistent

  • to which clear meaning can be given; meaningful to help make decisions

  • VCAT is required to consider; consider does not mean 'give effect to'

  • the words of your local policy will be subjected to 'forensic examination'

'if its not in the scheme, its not worth the paper its written on'

Making decisions in planning:

  • must be dispassionate

  • 2 reasonable people could come to different conclusions
