Paper on Inter-urban breaks

Maintaining inter-urban breaks is addressed in the draft SEQ Regional Plan and is a strong topic of interest raised at public information sessions and reflected in many in submissions. There is scope to make formal recognition of ‘inter-urban breaks’ in the statutory regional plan to ensure these areas are protected from future urban development. The preferred pattern of development, as reflected in the regional vision for the future of SEQ, is a well-planned region of cities or large urban areas separated by open space.

This draft internal paper details the principles and strategies that work towards protecting inter-urban breaks based on the draft South East Queensland Regional Plan and recommendations on investigating options for direct recognition and protection of inter-urban breaks in the regional plan, including the use of regulatory provisions.
