Queensland Plan Bill 2014

04 September, 2014

The Queensland Plan Bill 2014 was introduced to Parliament last Thursday. The Bill gives effect to the ‘Queensland Plan’, which focuses on 9 areas - including Economy, Environment, and Infrastructure – and is intended to apply for the next 30 years.

The Queensland Plan will become a legal instrument through this bill, and could have a significant effect on multiple areas of government.

The Bill will require that all governmental policies, programs and services are consistent with the strategic direction of government – as set out in the Queensland Plan. It will also enable the Premier to determine a set of ‘core outcomes’ for departments and statutory bodies to achieve.

The bill has been referred to the Finance and Administration Committee for consideration and is open for submissions until Monday 22 September.
