Regional Planning

The FNQROC LG Regional Planners Group was formed to enable Local Government Planners within the region to share their knowledge and expertise in:

  • Interpretation of legislation and state planning policies, content development for planning schemes, and resolve issues with the implementation of FNQ Regional Plan 2009-2031

As stated by DSDMIP, Regional Plans recognise diversity and identifies matters that are important and specific to a Queensland region. They support growth and development in the regions whilst protecting each region’s natural resources along with the interests of the State. 

Regional plans are made through collaboration with local governments, residents, key industry groups and the wider community so that everyone’s interests are considered. Local governments in a region must consider the regional plan when preparing their local planning schemes. 

The goal of the FNQROC Regional Planners Group is to position the region so it can be offered the same opportunities for involvement in the future development of guidelines, policies and legislation which is available to SEQ councils when reviews are planned.
