Planning and guidelines

Environment guidelines help administering authorities like the department and local government implement the Environmental Protection Act 1994, its associated regulations and environmental protection policies.

Refer to the development application process for information about development approvals.

If you need more information about the Environmental Protection Act 1994 or environmental protection policies contact your local council or one of the department's business centres.

Most Queensland legislation is available online. Electronic versions are not official versions. The Queensland Government has contracted a commercial printer, LitSupport Pty Ltd, to print for purchase Queensland legislation available on the Office of the Queensland Parliamentary Counsel (OQPC) website.
