TLPI 2/2018 - Cordalba to Wallaville Cane Railway Infrastructure
Council at its meeting held 13 November 2018 resolved to adopt Temporary Local Planning Instrument 2/2018 – Cordalba to Wallaville Cane Railway Infrastructure (see notice of adoption). This TLPI provides an interim policy response that suspends aspects of Council’s Planning Scheme. The TLPI took effect on 16 November 2018 and will cease to have effect on 16 November 2020 unless repealed earlier.
TLPI 2/2018 was adopted by Council to provide an interim policy response to facilitate the development of new cane railway infrastructure from Cordalba to Booyal and Wallaville. The TLPI responds to a significant risk of serious adverse economic, social or cultural conditions in the Bundaberg Region. Specifically, the potentially lengthy timeframes and uncertainty associated with the impact assessment or planning scheme amendment process presented a risk that this regionally significant infrastructure project would be significantly delayed, or in the worst case scenario, abandoned.
The TLPI 2/2018 provides a short term policy response designed to advance a key project that has potential for significant economic benefits for the Bundaberg Region.
