The expansion of North West Queensland's mining and energy sectors will have environmental, social and economic consequences on the region.
The North West Regional Plan addresses these impacts in conjunction with the:
- Northern Economic Triangle Infrastructure Plan 2007-2012
- Sustainable Resources Communities Policy
- Sustainable Futures Framework for Queensland Mining Towns
Growth Management Queensland is leading the Queensland Government's response to growth.
The organisation is responsible for delivering better linkages between statutory documents like the North West Regional Plan and other programs and tools which facilitate land use planning, infrastructure delivery, economic development, protection of environmental assets, expansion of greenspace and affordable housing.
This approach will ensure that growth in the North West strikes the right balance to maintain a strong economy, build a sustainable future and protect an enviable lifestyle.
