Together We Can Do Better

About Us

The Planning Enforcement Officers Association has been formed from a vast network of members in various municipalities all across Victoria actively involved in planning enforcement and come from all fields of life, including metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The PEOA was originally formed in July 2000 and has since grown from into the organisation we know today, with current membership in excess of 200 members, reflecting the commitment to the organisation and the value it represents.

The Association is driven by a need to assist members in both urban and rural areas to acquire and share information so as to deal with the multitude of planning issues we face day to day.

Members are primarily officers employed by local councils or associated professions who are committed to providing quality public service in performing their statutory duties.
