State planning policies

State planning policies are planning instruments that the planning minister can make to protect things that are of interest to the state. When a local council is developing its local planning scheme, it must ensure that the planning scheme integrates the state interests outlined in the state planning policy. If there is a discrepancy between a local planning scheme and a state planning policy, the state planning policy overrides the planning scheme.

The Queensland Government established a State Planning Policy (SPP) in December 2013 to replace multiple state planning policies previously in existence.
