Scenic Rim Regional Council is presently subject to the provisions of three separate planning schemes: Beaudesert Shire Planning Scheme 2007, Boonah Shire Planning Scheme 2006 and Ipswich City Planning Scheme 2006.
The relevant planning scheme is determined by the location of a property under former local government boundaries prior to March 2008.
Beaudesert Shire Planning Scheme 2007
In March 2013 Council commenced preparation of a new Scenic Rim Planning Scheme. The new Planning Scheme will replace the existing planning schemes that apply to the former Beaudesert Shire, Boonah Shire and Ipswich City council areas within the Scenic Rim region, and ultimately govern the region's future development.
