The Central Queensland region has strong agricultural base and a well established resource sector which benefit from proximity to Queensland's world class port facilities at Gladstone. These powerful economic sectors coupled with the significant investment in major infrastructure corridors will continue to drive the state's economy. To ensure their long-term viability and co-existence a holistic approach to resolving land use conflict and safeguarding our communities is required.
The Central Queensland region includes the five local government areas of:
- Banana Shire Council
- Central Highlands Regional Council
- Gladstone Regional Council
- Rockhampton Regional Council
- Woorabinda Aboriginal Shire Council.
The Central Queensland Regional Plan will resolve land use conflicts arising from agricultural and mining activities, foster diverse and strong economic growth; plan and prioritise infrastructure; and manage impacts on the environment.
The region was formally designated on 29 June 2012, with the Regional Planning Committee gazetted on 20 July 2012 and the committee's inaugural meeting held in Emerald on 27 July 2012.
The Queensland Government is committed to preparing a draft version of the Central Queensland Regional Plan and making it available for public comment in mid-2013.
The final Central Queensland Regional Plan is scheduled for release late 2013.
