Planning and Environment
Almost nine months after its completion in July 2016, the Report of the Major Hazard Facilities Advisory Committee (Committee) was released in March 2017. The Committee reviewed Victoria's land use planning framework for areas surrounding Major Hazard Facilities (MHFs), and has made recommendations intended to better protect MHFs from encroachment by more sensitive uses such as residential development. Some examples of registered MHFs include oil refineries, LPG facilities, large fuel and chemical storage sites, and chemical plants.
