Next Step Taken on the Planning Reform Road
Today the Queensland government released the draft single State Planning Policy intended to replace the existing 12 State Planning Policies. The single State Planning Policy (SPP) clarifies state interests in the planning and development system. The document details 18 matters of state interests in the planning and development assessment system, organised into five categories including:
- Housing and liveable communities
- Economic growth
- Transport and infrastructure
- Hazards and safety
- Environment and heritage
The draft single SPP will be on public display until 12 June 2012 and can be found here.
