Better planning for Queensland

15 September 2015 –

The Palaszczuk Labor Government is working on a better planning system that enables responsible development, and sustainability and livability.

Some of the areas planning laws can contribute to are:

  • improving the quality of public places
  • improving opportunities for jobs and local economies
  • making housing more affordable
  • making sure communities are supported with adequate infrastructure
  • protecting important natural resources
  • managing the impacts of natural hazards like flooding
  • talking long term challenges like climate change and our ageing population.

The Government has released draft planning bills for public consideration – these are available now and open for consultation until Friday 23 October. For more information visit www.dilgp.qld.gov.au/planning-reform
