Planning reforms-submissions due!

The Queensland Government is seeking comment on the draft planning supporting instruments until 6pm 5 February 2016. The supporting instruments include the regulation and the rules and guidelines which now contain much of the substance of the planning framework, including the development assessment rules (previously the IDAS framework).
If you care about the quality of Queensland’s planning laws, it is essential to get commentary in on these supporting instruments.

Planning matters! Development is the biggest impact humans have on our environment and what shapes our communities. Our planning laws provide the fundamental tools in regulating the impact of development; they provide environmental protections as well as the right for the community to have their concerns heard around bad development proposals. Get your submission in by Friday, so we get the best planning framework possible to protect community rights and our environment!
