Assessment of development on coastal land
The Coastal Protection State Planning Regulatory Provision—the SPRP—is the primary instrument used by local government and the department for assessing development in the coastal zone and the coastal management districts. It suspended the operation of the Queensland Coastal Plan – State Planning Policy for Coastal Protection (SPP 3/11) in October 2012.
The Queensland Coastal Plan – State Policy for Coastal Management remains in operation.
It is intended that the SPRP will be replaced by the single State planning policy (single SPP) during 2013. A draft single SPP has been released by the Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning for public consultation. The draft single SPP includes policies articulating the state's interests in planning and development, including revised coastal SPP 3/11 policies. Further information about the SPRP or draft single SPP is available from the Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning.
