The Minister for Planning established terms of reference for the Advisory Committee.
The Committee conducted a series of hearings in July 2010.
As part of its review the Advisory Committee prepared an Issues and Options Paper to stimulate discussion.
The Department of Planning and Community Development commissioned the Victorian Planning and Environmental Law Association (VPELA) to prepare a briefing paper to assist the Advisory Committee in the preparation of its discussion paper. The purpose of the briefing paper was to record for the Committee’s benefit a thorough overview of the legal issues that arise in the context of climate change affecting coastal locations. The overview is intended to assist the Committee in the formulation of ideas and the identification of issues that require further explanation, investigation and analysis.
