The South Burnett Regional Planning Scheme 2017 took effect on 2 October 2017. You can download the scheme using the links found below. If you have difficulty downloading the documents, please contact Council for assistance.
The South Burnett Regional Council Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (No.2) 2015 commenced on Monday 20 July 2015.
With the introduction of the Sustainable Planning (Housing Affordability and Infrastructure Charges Reform) Amendment Act 2011, an applicant’s obligations with respect to infrastructure contributions/charges is now contained in a separate adopted infrastructure charges notice rather than in a development approval.
Please see the below Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution.
Laws that required the installation of rainwater tanks (or other water supply systems) with new houses and commercial buildings where the property was located in a reticulated town water area were repealed on 1 February 2013. Housing providers and property owners can now choose to voluntarily install a rainwater tank.
Rainwater tanks can only be required to be installed with new houses and/or commercial buildings where a local government has been approved by the Minster to opt-in to the QDC.
Nb. The South Burnett Regional Council did not opt-in and the Designated Rainwater Tank Areas as referenced, per Council’s IPA Planning Schemes do not apply. Development outside reticulated town water supply areas, requires the installation of rainwater tanks totalling 45,000litres. It is recommended that consultation is sought with Council's Plumbing Inspectors to confirm these requirements.
