Closed 16 Jun 2014

Opened 19 May 2014


The Queensland Planning Provisions (QPP) are the standard planning scheme provisions made under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 (the Act). These provisions provide a consistent format and structure for local governments to prepare their planning schemes under the Act, while allowing the flexibility to address each local government’s circumstances.

QPP version 3.0 has been reviewed to achieve better planning and development outcomes for local governments and communities.  You can view the summary of changes and the revised QPP version 3.1 below.
