Wolter Consulting Group’s Planning Team lodge submission calling for a more straight forward DA system in Queensland


On Friday 5 February, the WCG Planning Team made a focused submission to the State Government Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning (DILGP) about the draft new Development Assessment Rules, which support the draft Planning Bill 2015. The rules will have a direct impact on our day to day operations and, at the end of the day, on our clients’ bottom line. Our town planners road tested the draft rules, to highlight issues and improvements. Our comments are about ensuring a simpler set of rules and streamlined DA steps are in place so that we can focus our time and efforts on project outcomes not process.
