The Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP) Framework was developed by Victorian councils to provide a streamlined and consistent methodology for requesting, receiving and assessing built environment sustainability outcomes through the planning process.

The SDAPP Framework comprises:
Any Victorian council can implement the SDAPP Framework in their municipality. We have resources available to councils to assist in this process. Please contact us for more information.

Sustainable Design Fact Sheets
The Sustainable Design Fact Sheets are a series of information sheets aimed at the development industry, which includes the Best Practice standards for each Sustainable Building Category, and suggested design strategies to meet those standards.
Originally developed by the Inner Metro Action Plan (IMAP) councils, custodianship of the Fact Sheets is currently being transferred to CASBE. The suite of Fact Sheets can be found below:
Introduction to the SDAPP Framework
