Planning and Environment Paper: State Planning Policy 4/11: Protecting Wetlands of High Ecological Significance in Great Barrier Reef Catchments - 13 Feb 2012

State Planning Policy 4/11: Protecting Wetlands of High Ecological Significance in Great Barrier Reef Catchments took effect on 25 November 2011.

This SPP seeks to ensure that development in or adjacent to wetlands of high ecological significance in Great Barrier Reef catchments is planned, designed, constructed and operated to prevent the loss or degradation of wetlands and their values, or enhances these values - in particular, the hydrological regime and ecological values of those wetlands.

In this paper, partner David Nicholls and associate Olivia Williamson outline the operation and effect of the SPP on development within the Great Barrier Reef catchments.
