The Fast Track Government Land Service (FTGL Service) manages planning scheme changes relating to surplus government land. This includes ensuring that appropriate planning provisions are in place on government land, correcting anomalies and updating planning scheme provisions to accurately reflect planning use and development.

Government sites are usually zoned Public Use Zone (PUZ) to reflect their public ownership and purpose. PUZ sites cannot be sold to the private sector. Therefore, an appropriate zone, and any other relevant planning provisions, is required. This ensures that PUZ sites have consistent requirements and the same opportunities as other privately held land.

Landowning agencies and departments that require planning scheme changes for their land can apply for assistance through the FTGL Service.
