Draft planning instruments

The Property Council has provided a submission to the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning on several draft instruments developed to support the day-to-day operation of new planning legislation currently under investigation by the Parliament Committee for Infrastructure, Planning and Natural Resources.  

With the aim of creating greater certainty and transparency within the current complicated regulatory framework, direct feedback was provided to the proposed:

  • Planning Regulation 2016,
  • Plan Making Rules, 
  • Development Assessment Rules,
  • Draft Infrastructure Designation: Statutory Guideline for Ministerial Designations and
  • Draft Infrastructure Designation: Statutory Guideline for Local Government.

The Property Council’s submission to the Department can be viewed below.

The draft instruments will undergo further refinement based on the results of this public consultation and any further amendments to the draft legislation before being released for another round of consultation.
