Qld planning reforms: have your say on instruments by 5 February

Qld planning reforms: have your say on instruments by 5 February

The Government is currently seeking comment on the 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 our planning laws, it is integral to get commentary in on these supporting instruments.

Need help? You can also use our submission template.

Simply:
1) Download the submission template
2) Replaced highlighted sections with your details, and add your opinions and any personal examples to support your opinions
3) Send to bestplanning@dilgp.qld.gov.au
4) Let us know you made a submission, by emailing us at edoqld@edoqld.org.au

The Department of Planning have provided a useful survey which can help direct your comments on particular issues relevant to the supporting instruments, or to assist in directing your comment in your submissions. If you would like to complete this, you can download it here and complete and send it to bestplanning@dilgp.qld.gov.au.

To assist in completing the survey and/or your submissions, we recommend you review a useful slideshow provided by the Department, with inbuilt video links (click on TVs on slides), which assists in explaining changes to the Government’s Planning Bill prior to introduction to Parliament, and the context of the supporting instruments, downloadable here.
