Planning

The Mandatory Planning (Walkable Neighbourhoods) Amendment Regulation 2020 has now been introduced by the Queensland Government. This new Regulation comes into effect from the 28th of September, creating new requirements for the subdivision of land.

Under the legislation, new benchmarks requirements have been created, including:

  • Grid like patterns that respond to the local landscape
  • A maximum street of less than 250m
  • A minimum of one tree every 15m
  • Footpaths on at least one side of the road
  • Parks and open space within 400m of each block

There is some flexibility where the local landscape affects the ability to meet these requirements.

Our experienced Brazier Motti planning team have a comprehensive understanding of these new requirements and are ready to discuss how it might affect your project and how we can help you achieve workable solutions.

Regional areas set to grow

Initial signs are positive for Townsville’s property market, which is experiencing a bounce following the impact of COVID-19. Government first home builders’ grants have led to a surge in demand for new homes with developers around the city reporting significant increases in demand.

The promising short-term boost has come as demographers are forecasting that COVID-19 might increase a trend in population shift to regional Australia. It’s anticipated that regional cities could benefit from economic and community changes resulting from the pandemic, including remote work arrangements becoming more popular, domestic manufacturing growing, and more people looking for less densely populated areas.

This may prove to be accelerating an existing trend, with the Regional Australia Institute releasing a report in June finding that contrary to expectations, regional areas had a net gain in population from the capital cities between 2011 and 2016. The report found the key drivers for movement to regional areas were mining employment opportunities, affordability, and lifestyle.

With a great lifestyle and access to key economic drivers including agriculture, mining and tourism, North and Far North Queensland is ready to play its part.
