The Built Environmental Sustainability Scorecard is an assessment tool, recognized by local governments in Victoria. It is suitable for residential, non-residential and mixed-use developments.

What is a BESS Report?

Using BESS we can determine how your proposed development will demonstrate sustainable design, at the planning permit stage. It is typically required under modern Local Council Planning Schemes to attach a copy of a BESS report to your planning permit application.

A score of 50% or above is equivalent to a pass in BESS, indicating that the proposed development will meet best practice standards in environmentally sustainable design. A score of 70% or greater demonstrates project excellence.
