One of the major mysteries of Queensland's housing industry was what types of reforms – if any – would be introduced to the state's planning stage.
Luckily, a recent release from the state government entitled Better Planning for Queensland sheds some light on these developments. This could be good news for investors interested in building their own Caboolture real estate in the near future.
The Property Council's executive director for Queensland Chris Mountford said the reforms outlined in the discussion paper have come after 18 months of extensive consultation, in order to bring the most logical and effective changes to the state.
"Of particular note are changes aimed at creating 'efficient and consistent decision making', which when coupled with more streamlined and logical legislation, will provide greater certainty for industry, local government and the community," said Mr Mountford in a 25 May statement.
"The Property Council is also pleased to note the government's intention to introduce a statutory guideline focused on better engagement with the community early in the plan-making process."
These new changes will be the topic of consultation and discussion over the the coming months, before the government announces new legislation in October this year.
