Planning Regulation amendments

The Planning (Infrastructure Charges Register and Other Matters) Amendment Regulation 2019 (Amendment Regulation) contained amendments to the Planning Regulation 2017 relating to document availability that commenced on 1 January 2020.

The Queensland Government introduced the Amendment Regulation with the objective of improving the transparency of the infrastructure charging and planning framework. This was in response to community and stakeholder feedback on the current framework.

The Amendment Regulation introduced additional obligations to provide public access to information about the City’s Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP), infrastructure charges and trunk infrastructure delivery.

In addition to the City’s Annual Report and Budget, this Trunk Infrastructure Information (TII) Register will be published periodically. This is in accordance with Schedule 22 Section 3A of the Planning Regulation 2017.

The TII Register is intended to provide the community and development industry with greater transparency and certainty regarding the City’s commitment to plan, fund and deliver trunk infrastructure. This commitment is set out in Part 4 of the LGIP included in the City Plan. The LGIP outlines the City’s vision for trunk infrastructure services. It assists in providing trunk infrastructure in an efficient, coordinated and financially sustainable way.
