The Victorian Government has also introduced new legislation into the Victorian Parliament – the Planning and Environment (Distinctive Areas and Landscapes) Bill 2017. Once passed this will allow the Victorian Government to declare locations such as the iconic Macedon Ranges region a distinctive area. The proposed legislation will also allow for the introduction of long term settlement boundaries https://www.planning.vic.gov.au/latest-news/landmark-legislation-to-protect-the-macedon-ranges
