About us

Member councils

BESS is governed by the Council Alliance for a Sustainable Built Environment (CASBE), an association of Victorian rural and urban councils committed to the creation of a sustainable built environment within and beyond their municipalities.

BESS is provided free of charge to planning permit applicants. Ongoing management and maintenance of the tool is funded by participating local governments via annual subscription fees paid to the Council Alliance for a Sustainable Built Environment (CASBE). 

For further information about CASBE, visit the CASBE website or contact the CASBE Executive Officer at casbe@mav.asn.au.
