Fast Track - Compliance Assessment Applications

A fast tracked compliance assessment process for signing subdivision plans providing for five business day approval timeframes were introduced by Council on 1 July 2014.

Planning and Development Committee Chair, Councillor Paul Tully said that these assessment reforms meant assessment of development conditions for minor reconfiguration of lot approvals such as a 1 into 2 lot subdivision or boundary realignments would be turned around in five business days.

"This is a great initiative, as it increases the speed and efficiency of the survey plan endorsement process, while still ensuring appropriate levels of assessment" Cr Tully said.

Well made applications for minor forms of compliance assessment encompassing minor reconfigurations, dual occupancies, boundary realignments, and access easements for example that are not subject to statutory government referral process, significant engineering works or are not subject to the creation of easements or the transfer of land, will fall under the new assessment timeframes.

"It's all part of ensuring Ipswich maintains competitive development assessment processes that are consistent with the aims of the city."
