Planning Scheme

The Planning Schemes are statutory documents that set out Council’s intention for each area’s future development. They contain information about the zoning of land, identify specific criteria for development in constrained areas and detail the provisions that relate to the development of land uses. The Central Highlands Regional Council currently has four current Integrated Planning Act (IPA) Planning Schemes that are in force over the former local government land areas of Bauhinia, Duaringa, Emerald and Peak Downs.

For further planning information or to lodge an online development application with Smart eDA, visit council’s website or contact the CHRC office on 1300 242 686.
