Application fees are within Class 7 - Class 10 of the Fee Schedule(DOCX, 62KB) / Fee Schedule(PDF, 184KB).


Not all applications are eligible for VicSmart. Eligibility depends on a range of factors including:

  • The type and scale of development that you want a permit for,
  • The planning zone and overlays for your property (you can check these at Department of Transport and Planning); and
  • Any restrictions on the title for your property (you can purchase a current copy of your title from Landata).

To check if your application qualifies for VicSmart:


Prior to applying you must confirm that your application is eligible for VicSmart. If your application is not eligible it will need to be resubmitted as a standard planning permit application, which will cause delays.
