Part 4 Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP)
This Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 (SPA).
The LGIP applies to the area covered by the Gladstone Regional Council Planning Scheme.
The States Statutory Guideline 04/14, "Making and Amending Local Planning Instruments" (MALPI), the process for review and adoption of this LGIP is as follows:
- LGIPs for new planning schemes or 5 yearly LGIP reviews will be subject to review by an external third party.
- All other interim amendments (including major, minor and administrative amendments) will be signed off by CEO/Council.
The purpose of the Local Government Infrastructure Plan is to:
- Integrate infrastructure planning with the land use planning.
- Provide transparency regarding a local government's intentions for the provision of trunk infrastructure.
- Enable a local government to estimate the cost of future infrastructure provision to assist its long term financial planning.
- Ensure that trunk infrastructure is planned and provided in an efficient and orderly manner.
- Provide a basis for the imposition of conditions about infrastructure on development approvals.

The Local Government Infrastructure Plan:
- States in Section 4.2.2 (Planning assumptions – Population and employment growth) the assumptions about future growth and urban development including the assumptions of demand for each trunk infrastructure network.
- Identifies in Section 188.8.131.52 (Priority Infrastructure Area) the prioritised area to accommodate urban growth up to 2031.

- water supply
