Our submission seeks to prevent changes that threaten food and water security and private assets

P & E Law’s agribusiness and planning teams have provided a submission to the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning about the proposed amendments to the Regional Planning Interests Act 2014.

The submission has focused on impacts on priority agricultural areas above the Walloon coal measures in the Condamine Alluvium. The examples given relate particularly to that area and are mostly directed to impacts on farms in priority agricultural areas for priority agricultural land uses.

Many factors raised in the submission apply to the other areas of State significance including townships, environmental areas and strategic cropping land. [Dec 2023]
