Part 1 About the planning scheme
- The Our Place Our Plan Gladstone Regional Council Planning Scheme has been prepared in accordance with the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 (the SP Act) as a framework for managing development in a way that advances the purpose of the SP Act.
- The planning scheme was amended for alignment with the Planning Act 2016 (the Act) by the Minister's rule under section 293 of the Act on 3 July 2017
- In seeking to achieve this purpose, the planning scheme sets out Gladstone Regional Council's intention for the future development in the planning scheme area, over the next seventeen years to 2031.
- The planning scheme seeks to advance state and regional policies through more detailed local responses, taking into account the local context.
- While the planning scheme has been prepared with a seventeen year horizon, it will be reviewed periodically in accordance with the Act to ensure that it responds appropriately to the changes of the community at a local, regional and state level.
- The planning scheme applies to the planning scheme area of the Gladstone Regional Council including all premises, roads, internal waterways and local government tidal areas and interrelates with the surrounding local government areas illustrated in Map 1.
Editor's Note—The planning scheme has been amended to align with the regulated requirements as provided in the Planning Act 2016 . In accordance wth section 16(3) of the Act, the regulated requirements apply to the planning scheme to the extent of any inconsistency. State legislation may state that the planning scheme does not apply to certain areas, e.g. strategic port land where there is a land use plan only to the extednt of any inconsistency. In accordance with the provisions of section 246 of the Sustainable Ports Development Act 2015 a port overlay for a master planned area prevails over the planning scheme, to the extent of any inconsistency.
Note—Refer to Part 10 - Other Plans for areas of the region governed by plans and legislation which overrides or otherwise effects the operation of the Gladstone Region Planning Scheme.
