New guidelines for developers in Victoria: The State Government this week announced a voluntary process for developers, to be known as the Design Advisory Service, which will offer them access to advice from professionals including architects, building designers, urban designers and planners. The process is designed to give developers resources to understand and comply with the minimum apartment standards introduced in March.
The State Government will also introduce an Apartment Buyers and Renters Guide as a resource for prospective buyers, and new Urban Design Guidelines for the integration of buildings and the public spaces around them.
