Heritage Planning for Major Projects in Victoria

A critical element in major project planning is having the best expert advice available for key planning decisions, as would typically be required for projects meeting the threshold for Environmental Effects Statements (EES), Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and other state-based major planning instruments (e.g. Comprehensive Impact Statement (CIS) in Victoria). Similar heritage planning advice is required for major development projects, such as precinct structure plans.
