<!--[if !vml]-->New ESD assessment<!--[endif]-->Yarra City Council regards environmental sustainability as a high priority for its built environment. 

Key community targets to be reached by 2020 include:

To ensure our municipality achieves its environmental targets, Council introduced the voluntary Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP) program in 2011. From 19th November 2015 the voluntary SDAPP program has been formalised into a Statutory Planning requirement in the form of a Local Policy Clause 22.17 Environmentally Sustainable Development. Some planning applications are now required to demonstrate best practice in ESD, as set out in the 10 Key Sustainable Building Categories.

 

Council has established different application categories that relate to the size and type of your application. The chart below explains whether your planning application falls into the Small, Medium or Large category and whether ESD–related information needs to be submitted with your application.

The ESD Local Policy Clause 22.17 applies to all ‘Medium’ and ‘Large’ applications. For more information on the ESD Local Policy follow this link directly to the policy click here (insert future link).
