Fast-tracked planning assessments


Your planning application may qualify under the VicSmart assessment process. For applications assessed under VicSmart:

  • We expect a decision within 10 business days.
  • Applications do not require advertising.
  • We pre-set the information you must submit with your application.

You must meet a set criteria for your application to be considered under the VicSmart process. This criteria is specified under each zone, overlay and particular provision which may require a planning permit.

You must provide all required information with your VicSmart application. Otherwise, we will request further information. The information requirements for each type of VicSmart process are specified under Clause 59 of the Casey Planning Scheme.

Further information on the VicSmart assessment process is also provided at Clause 71.06 of the Casey Planning Scheme and on the State Government Planning website.

Facilitated Development Program

The Casey Cardinia region offers a Facilitated Development Program to prioritise commercial and industrial developments that support the delivery of local jobs through business expansion or new investment. Planning applications must demonstrate that development will improve the viability of existing businesses or create new employment opportunities within the region to be considered for the program.

Planning applications lodged with us may be prioritised through the Facilitated Development Program.
