Queensland Government to expedite sustainable infrastructure development assessments
The Queensland Government has released its Green Door policy which will see the state government agencies work with local government and referral agencies to accelerate the development assessment of projects that that demonstrate exemplary sustainability performance.
Features of eligible projects could include the delivery of planning and economic priorities in a particular region, a significant reduction of water, waste and energy, the creation of permanent jobs or the provision of innovative and effective sustainable transport options.
The Green Door policy is designed to reduce the time taken in the information and referral stage with added certainty upfront that the project will proceed smoothly through the process, allowing the delivery of sustainable projects sooner.
Local and state government assessment teams will work to help applicants through the process and provide advice on what they can expect before their application is lodged.
