Starting 1 January 2024, the Victorian State Government will mandate that new dwellings, apartment buildings, and residential subdivisions requiring planning permits be all electric, phasing out new gas connections.
This will be implemented through an amendment to the Victoria Planning Provisions and all planning schemes. It applies to both greenfield and infill sites across Victoria.
This policy will affect the construction of new dwellings requiring planning permits for the dwelling but will not impact:
Buying off the plan means entering into a contract to purchase a property before the property title is created and construction is complete or has even started. This can include the sale of vacant land, house and land packages and strata properties.
It’s a purchase option that gives buyers a range of valuable advantages, like saving on price, the option to customise and stamp duty concessions, but it may not necessarily be the best choice for everyone. So it’s important to understand the pros and cons.
