About the VPA

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is a State Government statutory authority that reports to the Minister for Planning.

Victoria is growing, with a projected population of up to 10 million people by 2050.

It is the VPA's main task to make sure Melbourne and Victoria's regions remain great places to live. This requires vision and long-term planning, to ensure Victorians have equitable access to employment, public transport, attractive public space and affordable housing.

Our work has since been expanded to undertake strategic planning and coordinated infrastructure for the future growth and transformation of Victoria's cities and regions – from new suburbs in growth areas, to areas undergoing change and growth in inner and middle Melbourne and our growing regional towns and cities.

The VPA will assist the implementation of the initiatives articulated in the long-term planning blueprint for our capital city, Plan Melbourne 2017-2050. Working closely with councils, government departments and the community, the VPA's program focuses on land use and infrastructure planning for strategically important precincts.


The Role

The VPA seeks a talented professional to lead and manage the preparation of greenfield precinct structure plans and other associated strategic plans.

We are currently recruiting a:

  • Strategic Planning Manager
  • Grade 6 - $113,156 - $151,426 (based on experience)
