Planning and Environment Paper: Further Reflections on the Queensland Coastal Plan - 14 Nov 2011

In a paper presented at the UDIA Qld Coastal Plan briefing in July 2011, the head of HopgoodGanim's Planning and Environment practice, David Nicholls, considered how the Coastal Plan will affect decision-making at a number of levels across government.

The Coastal Plan has not yet commenced due to ongoing consultations between the State government and stakeholders. A working group of stakeholders has been formed to review the current, uncommenced version of the Plan, and it seems likely that the final version will be amended.

In this paper, David shares some reflections on the planning and economic issues raised by the State Planning Policy for Coastal Protection (SPPCP). The earlier paper should be read first to appreciate the statutory context in which the SPPCP will be applied.
