The Mandatory Planning (Walkable Neighbourhoods) Amendment Regulation 2020 has now been introduced by the Queensland Government. This new Regulation comes into effect from the 28th of September, creating new requirements for the subdivision of land.

Under the legislation, new benchmarks requirements have been created, including:

  • Grid like patterns that respond to the local landscape
  • A maximum street of less than 250m
  • A minimum of one tree every 15m
  • Footpaths on at least one side of the road
  • Parks and open space within 400m of each block

There is some flexibility where the local landscape affects the ability to meet these requirements.

Our experienced Brazier Motti planning team have a comprehensive understanding of these new requirements and are ready to discuss how it might affect your project and how we can help you achieve workable solutions.
