State Planning Policy amendments consultation

Closed 30 May 2014

Opened 1 May 2014


To support the state’s continued growth and prosperity, the Queensland Government is reforming the planning and development system to make it the best in Australia. In line with this agenda, and following feedback from key stakeholders, the State Planning Policy December 2013 is being reviewed.

As part of this review, a number of amendments are proposed to streamline and clarify assessment and approval processes, align with Queensland Government policy changes and empower local governments to plan responsibly for their communities.

You can view the State Planning Policy and the proposed amendments below.

Some of the proposed amendments relate to the Environmental Offsets Bill 2014. You can find out more about this bill from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection using the link below.
