Integrated Planning Act
The Integrated Planning Act 1997 provided the framework for Queensland’s planning and development assessment system by balancing community well-being, economic development, and protection of the natural environment.
The main elements of this framework were:
- Integrated Development Assessment System (IDAS) - one system for all development related assessments by local and state governments
- Master planned areas
- State planning policies
- Regional planning
- South East Queensland regional planning
- Dispute resolution.
The repealed Act and subordinate legislation, Sustainable Planning Regulations 1998, are available from the parliamentary website.
