Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP)

On 28 May 2018 Scenic Rim Regional Council adopted the Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) for the region under the Planning Act 2016 (Planning Act) to be effective from 20 June 2018. The LGIP outlines the type, timing and location of planned trunk infrastructure for the region to 2031.  A LGIP is a statutory planning requirement of the Planning Act , that establishes a sustainable program of local, higher order infrastructure necessary to support population and employment growth in the region, including transport, stormwater, parks and land for community facilities. The LGIP replaces the Priority Infrastructure Plans in the Schedule 3 of the Boonah Shire Planning Scheme 2006, Schedule 7 of the Beaudesert Shire Planning Scheme 2007 and Schedule 11 of the Ipswich Planning Scheme 2006. 

The LGIP sets out the trunk infrastructure that Council intends to provide within the priority infrastructure areas identified for the region. Trunk infrastructure is infrastructure that services the greater community and can include stormwater infrastructure, roads, shared pathways, parks and land for community infrastructure. Trunk infrastructure is provided by Council and does not include infrastructure that is planned for and provided by the State government. Non-trunk infrastructure is infrastructure that generally only services a proposed development (for example, internal streets within a proposed residential estate) and is paid for and delivered by the developer. Non-trunk infrastructure is not identified within the LGIP. 

Water and wastewater infrastructure for the region is planned and delivered by Queensland Urban Utilities, which is outlined in Queensland Urban Utilities' (QUU) Water Netserv Plan that can be accessed at www.urbanutilities.com.au
