Office of Living Victoria
The Office of Living Victoria (the OLV) was established on 22 May to drive reform by coordinating urban and water planning.
The immediate focus of the OLV is integrated water cycle planning. Its initial work will include several key initiatives, including:
- administration of the Living Victoria Fund
- coordinate and facilitate the development of Integrated Water Cycle Plans for Melbourne's four growth areas and inner Melbourne
- preparation of a Regulatory Impact Statement for building controls to improve the water performance of new buildings
- working with the Department of Planning and Community Development to amend the Victoria Planning Provisions to apply the current performance requirements for the management of stormwater more broadly.
The work of the OLV will contribute to achieving the Government’s goal of ensuring water is planned for and used in ways that support and enhance Melbourne’s liveability.
