The South-East Queensland Regional Plan is under review
The Queensland State Government is currently reviewing the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2009-2031 (SEQ Regional Plan) in consideration to the region’s growing population. The SEQ Regional Plan currently allocates land in south-east Queensland as Regional Landscape and Rural Protection Area, Rural Living Area, and Urban Footprint. The Urban Footprint establishes a boundary for urban development to meet the region’s future development needs and includes both established urban areas and areas that could be suitable for future urban development.
The state government will be engaging in public consultation to ensure ongoing transparency and community engagement during the review process. Formal statutory public notification and community consultation on the Draft SEQ Regional Plan will be held from late October 2016 to February 2017.
If you currently own land on the edge of the urban footprint and believe that your land may be suitable for further development, now is the time to prepare and lodge a submission the State government. Inclusion of your property in the Urban Footprint by the State government may significantly increase the development potential and value of your land.
Following the consultation process, the state government will be reviewing and responding to submissions from February 2017 until mid-2017. The final SEQ Regional Plan is intended to be released from mid-2017.
If you require assistance in making a submission during the public notification period or help in identifying whether your site is within the urban footprint, please contact us on (07) 3876 0533 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
