Bundaberg Regional Council Planning Scheme 2015


Bundaberg Regional Council Planning Scheme (Version 6.2)

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 It was originally made under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, with Version 1.0 commencing on 19 October 2015 (see gazette notice).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 current version of the planning scheme (Version 6.2) was adopted by Council at its meeting held 28 November 2023 and takes effect on and from 4 December 2023 (see gazette notice). Version 6.2 of the planning scheme incorporates the Planning Scheme Policy for the Hughes and Seaview Bargara local plan area and makes an associated administrative amendment. 

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.
