Planning Schemes

​The planning schemes currently in force and effect across the Lockyer Valley Regional Council area are those of the former Gatton and Laidley Shires which were in place when these shires were amalgamated to form the Lockyer Valley Regional Council on 15 March 2008.

The only exception is in the Grantham area where the Grantham Reconstruction Area Development Scheme prepared by the Queensland Reconstruction Authority has been in force and effect since 4 August 2011.

Draft Lockyer Valley Planning Scheme

The draft Lockyer Valley Regional Council Planning Scheme has been prepared to provide a single planning instrument that sets out consistent development requirements across the whole of the Lockyer Valley Regional Council area.

Public consultation on the draft planning scheme occurred between 21 April 2015 and 26 June 2015.

  • Submissions on the draft planning scheme are now closed.

When adopted by Council as its planning scheme, the draft Lockyer Valley Regional Council Planning Scheme will replace the Gatton Shire Planning Scheme 2007, the Laidley Shire Council Planning Scheme 2003 and the Grantham Reconstruction Area - Development Scheme. Until this occurs, the current planning schemes and the development scheme remain in force and effect.

If you have any questions regarding the draft Lockyer Valley Regional Council Planning Scheme, please contact Council on 1300 005 872.
