The Queensland Government is committed to delivering statutory regional plans for Queensland's regions. These regional plans seek to provide strategic direction to achieve regional outcomes that align with the state's interest in planning and development.

While land use planning is primarily the responsibility of local government, the state has an interest in ensuring that broader regional outcomes are achieved through the application of state policy in local planning.

The purpose of regional plans is to identify regional outcomes to help achieve state interests. Regional policies are used to facilitate these outcomes by addressing existing or emerging regional issues, such as competition between land uses.

Statutory regional plans are driven through collaboration with local governments, key industry groups and the wider community to ensure the aspirations of all regional stakeholders are considered.
