Planning reform outline released by Queensland government

By James Brown

One of the main obstacles to development of infrastructure and property in Burpengary and other communities across Australia is the unnecessary red tape involved in the planning process. 

However, the recently released directions paper Better Planning for Queensland outlined changes across the state. Minister for infrastructure, local government and planning Jackie Trad said the new framework would help to streamline future development and create a liveable, sustainable state. 

"Better Planning for Queensland will bring together the community, industry and council to help formulate a new Planning Act that can respond to the challenges of urban growth and is fair, open, transparent and easy to understand," said Ms Trad in a 25 May statement. 

This could be great news for future investors interested in building off-the-plan real estate across the region, making it easier for the planning process to get underway and beginning construction sooner. 

Planning Institute of Australia Queensland president Kate Isles supported the release of the paper, stating that further investment in policy reform is a superb help towards aiding the overall development of the state. 

Be sure to get in touch with a local real estate agent to begin looking into the property options available across Moreton Bay today.
