Review Flood Provisions – Queensland Planning Schemes & State Planning Policy 1/03: Mitigating the Adverse Impacts of Flood, Bushfire and Landslide

PSA Consulting has been engaged by the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (Qld RA) and the Department of Local Government and Planning (DLGP) to conduct an audit of the current flood related provisions contained within all current Queensland planning schemes. The planning schemes represent the statutory instruments that are currently in force and effect within the Local Government Areas during the flooding events of 2010/11.  Inparticular,  the review identifies, collates and analyses the provisions of the Queensland Planning Schemes to develop a comprehensive understanding of their intent, design and standards as they apply to the assessment of ,development in the flood plain; and filling within the flood plain.
