WHAT IS A PLANNING SCHEME?
A planning scheme is a statutory planning instrument prepared pursuant to the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 and the Queensland Planning Provisions.
The planning scheme presents a framework that regulates and manages land use and development in Somerset Region. The principle underpinning the planning scheme is to ensure that social, ecological and economic environments are sustainable into the future. The planning scheme provides a strategic and integrated basis for responding to the challenges of population growth and land use management into the future.
The Somerset Region Planning Scheme came into force on 1 March 2016. For further enquiries, please contact Council's planning section on (07) 5424 4000.
