Streamlining for Growth Evaluation Framework
Client: Victorian Planning Auhtority
The Streamlining for Growth (SfG) Program is administered by the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA). The Program was established in early 2016 as a one-year post-Precinct Structure Plans (PSP) approvals program providing targeted funding and resourcing assistance to Growth Area Councils. Its objective was, broadly, to speed up the release of land for housing and employment purposes. Following on from its success, in February 2017 it was extended for a further three years. This brought the total investment in the SfG Program to $24 million over four years. In 2018, VPA commissioned ACIL Allen to develop an evaluation framework for the SfG Program and use it to quantify the SfG Program’s economic impact.
