The Government Land Standing Advisory Committee was appointed by the Minister for Planning on 19 July 2015.

The committee is asked to advise the minister on the suitability of changes to planning provisions for land owned or proposed to be owned in future by the Victorian Government.

The committee may also consider proposals to facilitate the delivery of priority projects by the Victorian Government.

Sites are assessed by the Government Land Planning Service and if suitable, are referred in tranches (groups) to the committee for its consideration.
