On 3 July 2017, a new planning system commenced in Queensland. This new planning system is based on the new Planning Act 2016 and associated legislation and sees the end of the old Sustainable Planning Act 2009 (SPA).
In order to be ready for the commencement of the new planning system, the Etheridge Shire Council has carried out an “Alignment Amendment” to its “Integrated Planning Act (IPA)” based planning scheme.
The attached “Planning Scheme Provisions” reflect the changes made to the planning scheme through the alignment amendment.
Please note that the planning scheme maps have not been altered or amended through this process.
For information regarding Planning Applications, Forms, Fact Sheets, Guidelines and Checklists please follow this link to https://www.dilgp.qld.gov.au, click on "Resources" and follow the prompts as required.
