Development Assessment Rules open for comment

The State Government is exhibiting draft Development Assessment Rules for public comment. This will be the final process in the development of the new statutory instrument, which will be given effect in July 2017 by the new Planning Act 2016. The Development Assessment rules are designed to establish a standardised development assessment process across Queensland.

Few changes have been made to the DA rules from the previous draft version, which was exhibited for public comment earlier this year.

The draft DA rules, overview documents, and associated information are all available on the Department’s Better Planning website.

Submissions on the draft DA rules will be accepted until 19 December 2016.
