Reference and Incorporated documents

Reference and Incorporated documents provide background information on particular policies or provisions in the Knox Planning Scheme.

About incorporated documents

Incorporated documents must be taken into account by Council (and VCAT) when making decisions on planning permit applications.

They can only be amended by a planning scheme amendment.
