Bundaberg Regional Council Planning Scheme 2015

Drawing on housing plans

Bundaberg Regional Council Planning Scheme (Version 5.0)

The planning scheme sets out the blueprint for future growth and development of the Bundaberg Region. It was originally made under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, with Version 1.0 commencing on 19 October 2015 (see gazette notice).

The planning scheme was amended in July 2017 to align with the Planning Act 2016, as well as May 2018 to include Council’s Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) and July 2019 to incorporate amendments to the Planning Scheme Policy for Development Works. 

The current version of the planning scheme (Version 5.0) was adopted by Council at its meeting held 21 January 2020 and takes effect from 10 February 2020 (see gazette notice). Version 5.0 of the planning scheme incorporates planning scheme amendment No.5 (Major Amendment) and planning scheme amendment No.6 (Mon Repos / Sea Turtle Amendment). 

Information about the changes made to the planning scheme as part of these amendments is available here

In addition to the PDF version of planning scheme mapping included below, interactive mapping is also available to make it easier to search for a specific property and see what requirements may apply to a property or proposed development.
