Review of Queensland’s development assessment fees

Closed 5 Mar 2014

Opened 3 Feb 2014

Overview

The Queensland Government is reviewing development assessment fees for state interests triggered under Schedules 6 and 7 of the Sustainable Planning Regulation 2009, and for Brisbane core port land under section 283ZP of the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994.

The aim of the fee review is to introduce a consistent methodology for setting development assessment fees based on a ‘user pays’ approach to meet a new cost recovery objective of $25.3 million per year.  This will enable the government to more fully recover the cost of providing development assessment services and reduce the burden of taxpayer funding for these services.
