What happens next?

The draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (with changes arising out of public consultation) will be provided to the state government for its review. Council shall seek the State’s approval to adopt draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan.

Council will send letters to all submitters advising of the outcome of their submission(s) after the State Review has been completed.

Upon the State giving approval to adopt both the new Planning Scheme and part 4: The draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan, that have been separately publicly notified, these documents shall be combined, and Council will undertake the gazettal process. It is anticipated that, subject to State Government approvals, the Isaac Region Planning Scheme shall come into force and effect in early 2021.

A new Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution, that determines infrastructure charges based upon Part 4: Local Government Infrastructure Plan, shall come into force and effect at the same time as the Isaac Region Planning Scheme.


Isaac Regional Council resolved on 26 May 2020 to publicly notify a draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan that will form part of the proposed Isaac Region Planning Scheme. The proposed Planning Scheme is being publicly notified separately and can be viewed here.

You are invited to review Council’s updated draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan for Isaac. Submissions may be made during the public consultation period which will assist Council in the improvement of the draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan. 

The draft local government infrastructure plan contains information about the trunk infrastructure and would replace the current Local Government Infrastructure Plans which came into force on the 26 June 2018. They can be viewed at the following links: 

The draft local government infrastructure plan uses assumptions about the scale of development, infrastructure demands and assumed growth to identify the required infrastructure to the year 2036, to support the planning scheme.  It would apply to all the Isaac Region Council area, including that area that was previously contained in the Moranbah Priority Development Area.

The draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan identifies key trunk infrastructure in 4 networks that would be eligible for funding under an associated future Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution:

  • water supply network
  • sewerage network
  • transport network
  • public open space and land for community facilities network
