Work is progressing on Gladstone Regional Council's new amalgamated planning scheme. Council's Regional Strategy officers are continuing to work through this intensive project which began in 2009 and, ultimately, will govern the region's future development.
The new planning scheme will replace the existing planning schemes that apply to the former Gladstone City, Calliope Shire and Miriam Vale Shire councils which amalgamated to become Gladstone Regional Council in 2008. Council lodged its proposed planning scheme for State Interest Review in July 2014. When this review process has been completed, the Minister will provide Council with authorisation to proceed to public consultation. The focus for Council is to complete a full draft of the new planning scheme and ultimately provide the community with an opportunity to make formal comment. In the interim the current planning schemes prevail.
The diagram below provides indicative timeframes anticipated for each of the milestone stages leading to the adaption of Council's new planning scheme.
