The Queensland Government’s State Planning Policy (SPP) came into force on the 2nd December 2013. The SPP identifies the following key areas of State interest as:

  • Mining and Extractive Resources
  • Biodiversity
  • Coastal Environment
  • Water Quality (healthy waterways)
  • Emissions and Hazardous Activities
  • Natural Hazards
  • State Transport
  • Strategic airports and aviation’s facilities

Our team has been closely monitoring the development of the policy and are well versed in its implications across the state of Queensland in all areas of State interest. If you are unsure of the application to your activities and/or how it may impact your current projects please contact us. We would be happy to help you understand the implications and where possible use it to your advantage.
