Land Use Planning
The Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) is currently reviewing the Brisbane Port Land Use Strategy 2010 with a view to adopting a number of amendments.
In accordance with the provisions outlined in the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994, a Statement of Proposals (SOP) outlining the nature of these changes was released for a 20 business day public review period on 27 August 2012 (PBPL accepted additional submissions up to 6 November 2012).
In response to the issues raised by the community and various government departments during this time, PBPL subsequently prepared a Consultation and Submissions Review Report that was sent to all SOP submitters.
As part of the formal review process, it is a statutory requirement PBPL undertakes a second round of consultation to enable the community to comment on the Draft Brisbane Port Land Use Plan 2013 and provide further comment on responses to the submissions received during the SOP phase.
The second, and final, round of community consultation ran for 40 working days from Monday 10 December.

Land Use Planning
Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd oversee the development and on-going management of a diverse range of land uses, including: industrial, transport operations, marine infrastructure, retail/commercial, and environmental buffers.
In December 2010, the State planning regulatory framework in relation to development at the Port of Brisbane changed. A new Land Use Plan was developed (called the "Brisbane Port Land Use Plan") which came into effect on December 1, 2010.
The current land use plan:
has effect over all 'Brisbane Core Port Land' - the majority of these lands were previously known as 'strategic port land';
includes a strategic plan - outlining key land uses, trade projections and future infrastructure requirements;
divides port land into specific development precincts - including an outline of the key development 'intent' for each;
includes a number of 'Codes' - which specify the development requirements for each development;
includes a 'Contributions Schedule' - which specifies infrastructure charges (where relevant); and
includes a range of plans/figures/drawings - which help to spatially communicate the development vision for core port lands.
