The Victorian Government today announced it would “slash red tape” to streamline the deilvery of the Federal Government’s $3 billion of education and social housing projects.

“It will mean that new social housing and school building projects can start sooner, without being held up by red tape,” said planning Minister Justin Madden.

“The Government is taking action to ensure this funding stays in Victoria to deliver jobs, homes and nation building projects.”

The Minister for planning will take over responsibility for the state’s Social “Housing Initiative and Building Education Revolution projects”.

“These reforms will mean a significant number of non-government schools will be exempt from the need for a planning permit; so they can start works sooner and secure their share of the federal funding available to Victorian schools,” he said.
