 Infrastructure Designations

An Infrastructure Designation identifies land for infrastructure purposes to facilitate:

  • the integration of land use and infrastructure planning
  • the efficient and cost-effective provision of the infrastructure.

The Minister for Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning can make, amend and repeal an Infrastructure Designation for the purposes of infrastructure such as schools, hospitals or parks (under Chapter 2 Part 5 of the Planning Act 2016).

As part of this process and to ensure that the requirements for adequate environmental assessment and public consultation are met, a copy of the Environmental Assessment Report is provided for public viewing.

Proposed infrastructure designations currently available for public comment include:

Proposed Ministerial Infrastructure Designation for Sunnybank Special School at Sunnybank

Environmental Assessment Report (PDF, 3.1MB)

Feedback provided will be highlighted in future reporting as part of the Infrastructure Designation process and considered in determining whether to designate the site for community infrastructure. 

A public notice will appear in the Southern Star on Wednesday 22 November 2017.
