Regional planning in Queensland

Businesses may find it useful to consult the Queensland Government's regional plans during their planning activities.

Although local government is are primarily responsible for land use planning, state regional plans assist them to ensure broader regional outcomes are achieved when applying state policy in their local planning.

Regional plans identify matters that are important and specific to a Queensland region, including economic development. They support growth and development in the regions while protecting each region's natural resources along with the interests of the state.

Regional plans are created through collaboration with local government, residents, key industry groups and the wider community so everyone's interests are considered.
