1. PLAN AHEAD
The Plan Ahead app is a practical tool for those seeking to
get prepared in advance of planning reforms coming into force in
Queensland. Effective from 3 July 2017, the Planning Act
2016 (Qld) ("new Act") will repeal and replace the
Sustainable Planning Act 2009 (Qld) ("old Act").
Plan Ahead enables you to easily navigate between
Queensland’s current and future planning laws. At a quick glance,
users of this app can identify:
- sections introduced by the new Act;
- sections in the old Act which have a replacement provision in
the new Act;
- sections in the old Act which will be transferred to the new
Planning and Environment Court Act 2016 (Qld) ("PE
Court Act"); and
- sections in the old Act which have not been replaced.
- Section-by-section editorial notes provide detailed analysis of
the reforms including terminology changes, relocations and
removal of redundant sections, and forms.
- Certain procedural matters will be relocated to the Planning
Regulation 2017 (Qld) ("regulation") and
Development Assessment Rules (Qld) ("rules") rather
than the new Act. The app includes notes indicating which
sections of the Act should be read in conjunction with the
regulation and the rules.
