Have your planning permit fast tracked

Planning applications and proposals that meet certain criteria may be eligible to be fast tracked. Learn more about the three fast track processes available at the City of Whittlesea.

We have developed a number of initiatives to help reduce delays for planning permit applications that meet a specific criteria.

VicSmart Applications

VicSmart is a process for straight forward subdivisions, fences, advertising signage and minor buildings and works.

Fast Lane Applications

Fast Lane is a simple and fast process for assessing planning permit applications for single dwellings on lot sizes less than 300m2 located in our growth areas.

Anyone wanting to build a single dwelling on a lot less than 300m2, where a Development Plan Overlay applies, in suburbs such as Epping, Mernda, Doreen, South Morang or Wollert can use this service for a 15 business day turnaround.
