The Queensland Government has asked for public comment on the Draft South East Queensland Regional Plan 2009–2031.
Why make a submission?
The South East Queensland Regional Plan determines the future of SEQ: what is developed and what is not; which habitat is saved and which is destroyed.
The SEQ Regional Plan is the most important plan for the region: it overrides all other plans such as local plans or master plans.
If you only decide to do one thing for the environment this year, make a submission today.
